The Best Sites For Learning About The War In The Pacific

| 1 Comment

The new HBO series “The Pacific” is creating more interest in what happened in that arena during World War II, so I thought I’d quickly pull together a related “The Best…” list.

This list joins The Best Online Resources For Teaching & Learning About World War II (Part One), which has a huge amount of resources, including “The Best…” lists on Pearl Harbor and the atomic bombings of Japan.

Here are my picks for The Best Sites For Learning About The War In The Pacific (and are accessible to English Language Learners):

Moment In Time: Covering The Pacific War
is a slideshow from TIME Magazine.

War In The Pacific is a short video from McGraw Hill.

Holt Social Studies has an interactive map of the Pacific War and another one on “island-hopping to Japan.”

The Smithsonian has an interactive on the Navajo “code-talker” soldiers during the War In The Pacific.

HBO has an engaging website for the show, including a battle map.

The New York Times has a slideshow and video excerpt from the HBO show.

World War II in the Pacific is an interactive from Eduplace.

Feedback is always welcome.

  1. This is a great collection. My husband and son were just reading a book together about Code Talkers and will really appreciate that particular link. I passed on the rest to my social studies department after checking out several of the links. Thank you!
