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.
November 11
In 1940, British Fleet Air Arm aircraft attacked Italian ships in Taranto Harbor, Italy. The attack was an inspiration to Japanese war gamers later planning an attack on Pearl Harbor.
In 1944, American ships bombarded Iwo Jima.
In 1972, the U.S. Army turned over its base at Long Bihn to the South Vietnamese army, symbolizing the end of direct U.S. military involvement in the Vietnam War.
In 1983, President Reagan became the first U.S. chief executive to address the Diet, Japan's national legislature.
