Air War in the Pacific
The air war in the Pacific was essential to both sides. Air superiority could win any naval battle, and in addition to this leave military and industrial targets open for bombing raids. The short video below includes colour footage from the air war.
Pearl Harbour is one of the battles included in the video, and I would guess Midway, Leyte Gulf and the Battle of Philippine Sea could be some of the other battles. All of these battles are covered in greater detail within Battles of the Pacific War 1941 - 1945.
