South Pacific History Quiz – How Much Do You Know About WWII?

Quiz Updated:

While Hitler and Mussolini were busy in Europe, Japanese Leader Hideki Tojo had his own thing going in the South Pacific. Looking to expand Japan's power in the region, Tojo directly provoked the U.S. into entering WWII, something the Axis Powers had, up to that point, been trying to avoid.
This South Pacific quiz will launch you back in time to the Asian theater of WWII: the bereft South Pacific islands and the surrounding countries. The Japanese were conquering the world like no one's business, and their take-no-prisoners approach led to high-level land seizure and battles that laid their opponents flat. But as we all know, "Power corrupts; and absolute power corrupts absolutely." This could be said about the Axis Powers in WWII, and Japan was no different, as you will see with the Empire's absolute corruption when you take this South Pacific quiz.
Test your Knowledge of South Pacific History
On December 8, 1941, President Roosevelt made a speech that went down in history, calling the Japanese attack on America "a date that will live in infamy." He said: "The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan...No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people will, through their righteous might, win through absolute victory...with confidence in our armed forces with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph so help us God."
Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's response to the attack was one of fear. After Japan's success, he is quoted as saying: "I feel all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with terrible resolve." As it would turn out, the admiral was right. Our dynamic South Pacific quiz will throw you into the throes of this battle over the South Pacific islands and the surrounding battlegrounds, as we test your knowledge of WWII history.
