An orientation film about the American campaign against the Japanese in the South West Pacific during World War II. A map of the South West Pacific area depicts islands of New Britain and New Ireland as the chief objectives of the Americans. By taking over these islands the Japanese would be isolated in the area. But a strong defense zone around these islands proves to be the main deterrent. U.S. officers including U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur discuss the strategy to attack and isolate the Japanese in the South West Pacific region. Animated map of the region depicts American plan to capture the Admiralty Island by attacking the island of Manus and Los Negros to be followed by an attack in Madang in New Guinea. This would result in isolation of New Britain and New Ireland and weaken apanese position in the region.
