World War II in Europe had ended, but the Japanese desperately continued to defend the territory that they had amassed in the Pacific. Often noted as turning points in the Pacific war, the 1942 Battle of the Coral Sea and a devastating defeat at the Battle of Midway halted any new Japanese offensives in the Pacific. During mid-year 1943, a little closer to home on the Aleutian Islands, U.S. military forces had re-taken Attu and Kiska which earlier had been occupied by Japan.
