Battle of Guadalcanal
Up until August 1942, the Allies had been on edge in the Pacific Theater. The hostile capacity of the Japanese had been lessened after the maritime clashes of Coral Sea and Midway. Be that as it may, Japan was still in all out attack mode and was arranging intrusions of Fiji, New Caledonia, and Samoa. By August 1942, the Imperial Japanese Navy was building a progression of bases in the Solomon Islands that would give an organizing territory to these arranged attacks and offer security of their significant base at Rabaul. The Allies considered this to be a noteworthy danger to Australia. The Japanese were developing a runway on Guadalcanal that could expand Japanese air cover for their maritime powers progressing in the South Pacific.
