The Pacific Theater of World War II involved one-third of the earth's surface but only 1/145th of its total land mass. It involved vast distances and new strategy, tactics, equipment, and weapons of war.


War in the Pacific National Historical Park burgeons with life. Scars and stains of World War II still remain on many Pacific islands, but over time, vibrant plant and animal communities have dramatically rebounded.


Field trips, local teacher workshops and hands-on experiences enhance classroom learning and broaden the teaching and learning experience for educators and students.
