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):
War In The Pacific is a short video from McGraw Hill.
Media Rich Learning has a nice short video. However, there isn’t a direct link to it. You have to go to World War II, and then click on CHAPTER 7:Achieving Victory in the Pacific.
The Smithsonian has an interactive on the Navajo “code-talker” soldiers during the War In The Pacific.
Images Of The Pacific War is a slideshow from The Wall Street Journal.
Feedback is always welcome.
