||By the end of 1943 America's Pacific D-Days were being delivered with new expertise and power. The enemy found himself in an amphibious pincer with Admiral Nimitz attacking through the Central Pacific and General Macarthur thrusting from the southwest. General Macarthur would execute more Pacific D-Days than any other commander, but his landings did not come against small atolls. He began with the re-conquest of immense New Guinea, where he had been defending against the Japanese since mid-1943. This is the second in a series that tells the story of D-Days in the Pacific.
