This class will cover the major events of World War II in the Pacific theatre. We will discuss the decision processes that guided these events, how and why decisions were made, and the pros and cons of the decisions. Why did the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor? Why did the Allies drop two atomic bombs on Japan---wouldn't one have sufficed? What did the decision-makers know that guided their actions, and why did they pursue the courses of action they did?
