Abstract:

For the casual student of history, the success of the Pacific campaign in World War II suggests a brilliant strategy based on a cohesive allied vision On closer examination however, this strategy emerges as a flawed collage of compromises developed as a result of a complex process of political bureaucracy This paper uses Graham T. Allisons governmental politics model as a conceptual framework for analyzing the political and military interactions which led to the development of the Pacific strategy.
