The Sleeping Giant
U.S. Landing Craft
Though small and isolated, the many islands dotting the Pacific are of the utmost importanceto the U.S. Navy’s campaign, providing a place to regroup, rearm, and reassess. Landingcraft are the key to those islands.Prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States remained somewhat removed fromthe growing troubles in Europe. Wary of the Japanese Empire’s ambitious spread across thePacific, the United States had long been planning for the likelihood of open conflict. As Japanbegan their aggressive expansion into northern China, the United States was quick to support embargoes levied against the island nation.The Imperial Japanese Navy’s (IJN) surprise attack on Pearl Harbor dealt a severeblow to the United States Navy’s (USN) Pacific fleet, sinking eight battleships, among othervessels. Fortunately, the U.S. carrier fleet was away at the time of the attack, leaving theU.S. Navy wounded but far from defeated. The following details the ships and aircraft ofthe U.S. fleet.
