This program from the Combat Studies Institute considers broad U.S. and Japanese strategy in the Pacific. Panelists consider the reasons for America's "Europe First" strategy, and the reasons it moved away from that strategy to go on offense in the Pacific. They consider why deterrence of Japan failed, and the reasons Japan sought strategic depth against America with vast Pacific conquests, and the way they overstretched themselves. It considers the choice between allowing MacArthur to return to the Philippines and pushing through the Central Pacific, looking at the military and political calculations involved from many perspectives. It shows how the Japanese still hoped to wear down the U.S. in 1945, and indications it might have done so had it not been for the nuclear bomb.
