Welcome to Pacific Electric Monograph's guide to significant dates in Pacific History.
July 10
In 1945, more than 1,900 Superfortresses, carrier planes and medium bombers blasted Japan, with the hardest blow struck by 600 firebombing B-29s which destroy nearly two-thirds of Kofu, one of Honshu's largest inland cities. More than 1,000 planes from 15 carriers of Task Force 38 encountered no air opposition and skimpy anti-aircraft fire as they hit airfields near Tokyo.
In 1951, armistice talks aimed at ending the Korean conflict began at Kaesong.
In 1985, French commandos blow up and sink Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior at Auckland, New Zealand, killing a photographer.
In 1995, Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi was freed from her almost six-year-long house arrest in Rangoon, Burma.
