Coral Sea Naval Battle (1942)
by Erik Nygaard
coral.jpg
coral.jpg (26.35 KiB) Viewed 12295 times
Description: Coral Sea, May 1st - May 15th 1942
In the early May Imperial Japanese Navy forces sailed from Truk and Rabaul heading for Tulagi and Port Moresby respectively.
The Imperial Japanese Navy Command did not expect to find any US forces in the area as they believed all the US carriers to be damaged or occupied elsewhere.
The US had broken the Japanese Naval Codes and had despatched the carriers Lexington and Yorktown to the Coral Sea in late April with orders to turn back the invasion.
Failure by the US forces will mean the fall of New Guinea followed by the invasion of Australia.

east_sol.jpg (26.9 KiB) Viewed 12294 times
Description: On August 7th, elements of the US 1st Marine Division invaded the island of Guadalcanal and the nearby seaplane base at Tulagi, both in the Solomon Group. A partially completed airbase, promptly renamed Henderson Field after the first Marine aviator to fall at Midway, was captured and immediately became a base for Marine and Navy aircraft. A fierce surface engagement took place on the night of August 8th, a signal naval victory for Japan, although the result had little impact on the forces ashore. The control of Guadalcanal is considered vital. The flat-tops prepare to do battle, yet again...

Description: The goal of Operation Detachment was to capture the two working airfields and an additional under construction to provide a staging area for attacks on the Japanese main islands. This battle comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting in the Pacific. After the heavy losses incurred in the battle, the strategic value of the island became controversial as it was useless both to the US Army as a staging base and the US Navy as a fleet base.

Description: The invasion of this island was 'the last hurdle' before the proposed invasion of the Japanese Home Islands, only 50 km north. It was the largest amphibious operation in the Pacific. Okinawa would provide bases for direct land-based air support instead of relying on the Navy aircraft carriers. It would also be used as staging and supply bases.

Description: Operation Stalemate II was predicted by the commander of the 1st Marine Division to last 4 days to occupy the island. It took 73 days to finally secure it. In the US it was a controversial battle because of the questionable strategic value and the high casualty rate, matching those of Betio Island/Tarawa a year earlier. It was called 'the bitterest battle of the war for the Marines'.

Description: Since the American seizure of Guadalcanal in August, events have gone from bad to worse for the Japanese in the South Pacific. Piecemeal reinforcement and costly Banzai attacks have ruined any chance for the recapture of the vital airfield. Every day Henderson Field becomes stronger, larger, better supplied and better defended. USN and Marine Corps aircraft fly in daily. a 250 mile no-no zone surrounds the airfield in daylight, notwithstanding the regular bombardment from Betty bombers flying down from Rabaul. A major effort to recapture the airfield is looming.
