I recently unearthed my old SNES and a collection of games which included Pacific Theatre of Operations (PTO) and it's sequel, PTO 2.

  SACO:  The Sino-American Cooperative Organization
Not only was China a vital ally in the battle against the Japanese, but the Chinese theatre was one of the most critical -- and yet least known -- of the entire war.
Ensign Leu (who would later became a Lieutenant Commander) and about 200 other SACO men drove a large truck convoy on the Burma Road from Calcutta to Chungking, China, arriving in Chungking just as the war was ending, in August of 1945.
They are available from the National Museum of the Pacific War bookstore in Fredericksburg, Texas (http://www.nimitz-museum.com).

  Pacific Theater of Operations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Pacific Theatre of Operations (PTO) is the term used in the United States for all military activity in the Pacific Ocean and the countries bordering it, during World War II.
Pacific War is a more common name, around the world, for the broader conflict between the Allies and Japan, between 1937 and 1945.
Indeed, the organizational structure was rather tangled, with the Joint Chiefs of Staff frequently required to be involved, and the Army and Navy commanders reporting to both the Secretary of the Navy and the Secretary of War.

 The Theatre of Operations in Information Operations
Keeping our goal in mind, the Theatre of Operations will as such encompass a large area of interest, not merely limited to the locations where the parties to the hostilities are based, but it may also include regional and international media, pressure groups, NGOs and regulators.
The Theatre of Operations is the complete spectrum of actors, locations, ideas and communications media where operations may take place in order to lead to ones underlying goal of Information Supremacy.
In order to correctly view the Theatre of Operations in the case of Netwar, we have to be aware of the ‘network’ existing between different parties in a conflict.

 World War II Ends
In the Pacific Ocean, the Kingdom of the Ryukus (350 miles south of Japan) was abolished by Emperor Meiji in 1872 and in 1879 the Ryukus (perhaps most famous in World War II for the location of the island of Okinawa) was established as a Japanese Prefecture, governed from Tokyo.
The powers of the world were gradually moving towards a war in the Pacific and my opinion, a major mistake of the Japanese aggressors in the Pacific Theatre of Operations was their inability to grasp the immense nature of the Pacific Ocean, one-third of planet Earth.
The war in the Pacific was beginning to "wind down" and instead of "island hopping" through the Pacific Ocean, it was more an "island isolation" campaign: some islands were invaded and captured and some islands were by-passed, leaving Japanese troops isolated (and with dwindling supplies) as the Allied forces moved closer to Japan.

 March 2006 Pacific Forum
Pacific islanders reached the islands that we call New Zealand by ~1300 A.D., settled what we call Easter Island by ~300 A.D., and finally reached the islands we call Hawai'i by ~400 A.D. Along the way, other islands were discovered and settled, including the islands of Tahiti (part of what is called "French Polynesia" today).
The war in the Pacific Theatre of Operations was a totally different war than was fought in Europe and the various environments of the Pacific were truly different from the European Theatre of Operations.
Thousands of American and allied forces died on the ground, in the air, and under the sea in the Pacific War and there were problems all across the Pacific that had to be dealt with (and which were eventually dealt with): problems of logistics, supplies, and morale.

Fortress pilots were able to compensate somewhat for this weakness by jinking their planes back and forth when attacked from the rear, giving the left and right waist gunners alternatively a shot at the approaching aircraft.
The B-24 was better suited for operations in the Pacific, having a higher speed and a larger bombload at medium altitudes.
It was to be in the European theatre of operations that the B-17 was to gain its reputation.

 PACIFIC THEATER: OVERVIEW
World War II in the Pacific covered a vast sweep of ocean and land, involving millions of soldiers in years of epic conflict.
Concurrently, Admiral Halsey's South Pacific forces, operating under MacArthur's strategic direction, landed on the island of New Georgia in the Central Solomons to secure air bases to support further advances in a two-pronged drive up the Solomons and the New Guinea coast toward Rabaul.
The next major operation was an invasion of the island of Bougainville, beginning with nearby islands on 25-27 October 1943.

 Pacific Theatre
Once the Allies became strong enough to threaten their perimeter from several directions, the advantage would be lost, since Japan did not have and could not produce enough planes and ships to defend in force at all points.
The turning point in the Pacific theatre came in mid-1942 with history's first great carrier battles.
The advance through the Central Pacific got under way in November 1943 with the seizure of two islands, Tarawa and Makin in the Gilberts.

In Goodbye Darkness, Manchester writes of his personal experiences during World War II in the Pacific theatre of operations, and the experiences of the Marines in general.
To understand his own role in a part of World War II that is often overshadowed by the European conflict, Manchester visited all the major battle areas of the Pacific theatre of operations: Pearl Harbour, Guadalcanal, New Guinea, Tarawa, Peleliu, The Phillipines, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
Fighting in the Pacific theatre was extremely rigorous, and Manchester does a great job of making us feel the stupefying tiredness in sitting in a ship offshore, waiting to land on a defended beach, or trying to dig a foxhole from coral, or hacking your way along the Kokoda trail in New Guinea.

 Pacific Assault - coming soon!//
The Pacific Theatre was really infantry terrain, with tanks only being used in a supporting role (each US infantry and Marine division had a tank battalion attached).
It was to take part in operation 'Zipper', the liberation of Malaya, and operation 'Mailfist', the liberation of Singapore (the brigade was to wade ashore in 'Zipper', but make an airborne assault on the Johore Casuseway as part of 'Mailfist').
There were enough transport planes in the Pacific for the 11th to have made larger scale jumps, but MacArthur didn't like paratroop tactics, and believed that they were ill-suited to jungle warfare.
