"Mission" Statement & Disclaimer
"Mission" Statement 
    Per design, the aim and purpose of this site is it to support the understanding of a crucial part of World War II by presenting in educative yet entertaining manner vital aspects of the US and Commenwealth contribution to the defeat of Imperial Japan during World War II. The main audience, for whose use this site was originally setup, is hoped to be European, not American, for the simple reason that I could find out about a lack of knowledge regarding the Pacific War in Europe. However, any visitor of any nationality is highly welcome.
