Authored by Air Command and Staff College

The Battle of the Coral Sea, the first Naval engagement fought exclusively between Naval Air forces, was a pivotal battle of the war in the Pacific. Although considered a Japanese tactical victory, it was the beginning of the end of Japan’s war effort. This analysis examines this decisive battle from the Japanese perspective. The critical
analysis will include a summary of the reasons why the battle unfolded as it did, and will
draw conclusions as to how the Japanese may have been more successful both strategically and tactically in this key battle of World War II.
