World War II in the Pacific: Before Bataan and After

Chris Schaefer

World War II in the Pacific covered one of the largest areas ever affected by a single conflict. A third of the world’s population, oceans, and landmass were involved, yet it was a war fought almost entirely by two countries, Japan and the United States. Each week we will look at the strategy employed by each side in a specific phase of the conflict, how local people were affected, and what the civilian population in each country thought, or were led to believe, was going on. The first day of the course will examine the political processes on both sides that led to war in the first place. Subsequent classes follow the strategic and moral actions of each country and its leaders. Class discussions examine the events that took place, which leaders did the right thing, and the choices they made.

This class will be held onsite at WIH and simulcast via Zoom.
