_________________________________

The campaign in the Solomon's carried out the first
two steps of a three stage campaign planned for
Rabaul. The move northwest from Guadalcanal up
the Solomon Island chain toward Rabaul was named
Operation Cartwheel, the strategic responsibility of
the Army and General Douglas MacArthur.  Naval forces
were under the general supervision of Admiral Chester
W. Nimitz, whose vast Pacific Ocean Areas command
included the North, Central, and South Pa­cific Areas as
sub-theaters. After November 1942, the South Pacific
Area sub-theater was under Admiral William F. Halsey. Southwest Pacific forces were under General MacArthur.
