On December 7, 1941 Japan gambled all and bombed the US Pacific  Fleet at Pearl Harbour  on Hawaii.  In the following months Japanese forces  rampaged across Asia,  humiliating America and her allies. It looked as though she  was unbeatable. But then America fought back.

The War in the Pacific launched an entirely new form of naval warfare. By summer 1942  the United States ruled the waves  but  Japan was still  undefeated on land and a powerful  force in the air. The future was still far from certain.
