The Nazis were slower than the Allies to replace downed aircraft they had less experience with high-volume manufacturing ; they were also slower to replace fallen pilots their aircraft were harder to operate. Sam Yeager: A minor league ball player with the Decatur Commodores when the invasion takes place. He also was opposed to the idea that it was necessary for the Western powers to take a tough stand against the Soviet Union as failure to take a similar stand against Nazi Germany had led to war. Between August and FebruaryAllied forces carried out an invasion on the island of Guadalcanal—the beginning of a long series of Allied offensives that would eventually force the Japanese out of the Solomons and then pursue them from various other Pacific island chains that the Japanese had earlier seized. Some concentrate on using wartime ingredients such as dried eggs, while focus on how to make the best of small quantities of things that were in short supply, such as sugar [ see more ].
