Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
Crusade in the Pacific is a video series that documents the fighting between the United States and Japan's Empire of the Rising Sun during and immediately after World War II. Each episode examines a crucial stage in a war that was contested bitterly and marked by unheard-of savagery. This episode, Crusade in the Pacific: The War in the China-Burma-India Theater, covers what many people only think of as a sideshow to the real fighting of the Pacific War. In reality, the struggle to keep China supplied and able to resist Japanese incursion was a vital portion of U.S. strategy.
