Story #1- Admiral Yamamoto
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto was Japan’s most brilliant strategist — yet he resisted his nation’s rush to war.
He had lived in the United States and understood the consequences of attacking America.
Still, Yamamoto dutifully planned a bold attack on Pearl Harbor. But he also warned that it would give Japan’s navy the upper-hand for only six months.
His insight proved uncanny. The Allies first major naval victory came at Midway…six months later.
On April 18, 1943, Yamamoto was killed when his plane was shot down by U.S. forces.
Story #2: Eleanor Roosevelt
In the summer of 1943, Eleanor Roosevelt embarks on a secret goodwill tour of the South Pacific.
The popular First Lady visits enlisted men, America’s allies, and the wounded. She also insists on visiting the now hallowed battleground of Guadalcanal where so many died.
Story #3: Admiral Chester Nimitz
Born on the plains of Texas, Chester Nimitz had never seen the ocean until he joined the Navy.
As Commander of the Pacific Fleet, Nimitz rebuilds a shattered American fleet and leads it to victory after victory, from Coral Sea to Okinawa — and in doing so, redefines the very nature of naval warfare.
This veteran of World War I would also sign Japan’s surrender terms aboard the USS Missouri — thereby ending the War in the Pacific.
Story #4: Rosie the Riveter
Before the war, America liked to think of its women as wives and mothers.
But as men enlisted, a new ideal emerged — Rosie the Riveter.
Women quickly assumed a new place in factories, producing weapons, munitions, ships, and planes at a phenomenal pace to support the war effort.
The spirit of Rosie would come to symbolize all of these women.
