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 12
In 1942, the World War II naval Battle of Guadalcanal began. Although both sides suffered heavy losses, the Americans eventually won a major victory over the Japanese.
In 1943, the Japanese withdrew aircraft from Rabaul, and the base no longer threatened the Allies.
In 1948, former Japanese Premier Hideki Tojo and several other World War II Japanese leaders were sentenced to death by a war crimes tribunal.
In 1990, Japanese Emperor Akihito formally assumed the Chrysanthemum Throne.
