  25. With the U.S. now at war: • We’ll divide our study of the war into 2 geographic areas: Section 2 • The Eastern Theater of Operations (the ETO)…Europe and No. Africa Section 3 • The Pacific Theater of Operations (the PTO)

  26. The Nazis had broken their pact w/USSR:Operation Barbarossa (June 1941)

  27. By 1942 : War not going well for the Allies: • Germany controlled all of Europe and N. Africa and were deep into Russia

  28. Gloomy Prospects for the Allies The chain of spectacular victories disguised fatal weaknesses within the Axis alliance: Japan and Germany fought separate wars, they never coordinated strategies. The early defeats also obscured the Allies’ strengths: The manpower of the Soviet Union and the productive capacity of the United States.

  29. Turning Points of the War: The Battle of Stalingrad The Pivotal battle in the war in Europe Enemy at the Gates The German Army (“Wehrmacht”) had already lost 2 million men on the eastern front. In 1942-43, a German army of over 300,000 was defeated and captured at the Battle of Stalingrad. After losing a massive tank battle at Kursk, the Germans began a long retreat home… The Red Army crossed into Poland in January 1944.

  35. The Pacific Theater: Early Battles American Forces halted the Japanese advance in two decisive naval battles. Coral Sea (May 1942) U.S. stopped a fleet carrying Japanese troops to New Guinea Japanese designs on Australia ended Midway (June 1942) Japanese Admiral Yamamoto hoped to capture Midway Island as a base to attack Pearl Harbor again U.S. Admiral Chester Nimitz caught the Japanese by surprise and sank 3 of the 4 aircraft carriers

  36. U.S. strategy to defeat Japan: “Island-hopping” • No need to capture EVERY island… “hop” over some, leaving Japanese troops isolated • 1 island chain after another
