Website Spotlight: World War II (Pacific) Animated Map

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.


Animated maps are available for the following battles (as of the original date of this post):

I have used the Doolittle Raid, Midway, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa.

I. America Fights Back

The Doolittle Raid
The Battle of Midway Island

II. The Aleutians Campaign

III. Island Hopping Campaign

Tarawa and Makin
Kwajalein and Eniwetok
Battle of Philippine Sea
Battle of Leyte Gulf
Iwo Jima

IV. The Battle for Guadalcanal

The Battle for Guadalcanal Island
The Battle of the Eastern Solomons
The Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands
