Crusade in the Pacific looks at the Allied campaign in the Gilbert Islands in the central Pacific. Allied aircraft first target the Marshall and Gilbert islands in a series of raids. The United States, then, uses amphibious landings to attack the atolls of Makin and Tarawa. Casualties are heavy on Tarawa, but eventually the atoll is taken.
