Welcome to Pacific Electric Monograph's guide to significant dates in Pacific History. At this point, the listings are peculiarly weighted toward military history; this is only because of superior references in that area.

In 1942, Japanese troops land on Guadacanal in broad daylight, certain that American air resistance is wiped out. Marine SBDs, however, sink or strand three enemy transports. Japanese cruisers fire more than 1,500 shells into Henderson Field area.
