The Allies struggle to push the Japanese back on land, and break the Tokyo Express supply line. In New Guinea and the Solomons, what began as rearguard actions gradually becomes Allied advances. Progress is painfully slow and diseases like dysentery and malaria take a heavy toll on both sides. In summer of 1942, at the battles of the Coral Sea and Midway, American and Japanese navies face off in decisive battles that will prove pivotal for the rest of the war. Additional non-combat stories of the war's effect in faraway places - Tibet, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, even Miami - show the global reach of the Pacific War.
