Pacific Theater

For the category of the Pacific Theatre, we were fortunate enough to be able to interview a variety of people who took part in the drive to push the Japanese back to their own islands. Here, you will find testimony from a marine who fought in the brutal invasion of Iwo Jima, a pilot who fought in Okinawa, a navy radar specialist who worked in the Pacific, and more. Many of these men, together with those who fought in Europe, were spared the horrors of the attack on the Japanese mainland after the dropping of the atomic bombs and the Japanese surrender in 1945.
