Battle of the Coral Sea
-America: Intercepted Japan's plans. Manned the Allied force's planes.
-Britain: (same reason as America). Manned the Allied force's ships.
-Vice Admiral Takagi Takao led Japanese forces.
-The Allies' goal was to stop Japan, so the nation wouldn't have control of the Coral Sea.
Strategies and Tactics
-When the Allied forces got word of Japan's plan, they assembled in the Coral Sea and waited for the Japanese.
If Japan had won this battle, they would have been able to capture New Guinea and possibly Australia. But thankfully, the battle resulted in an Allied victory when Japan didn't have enough ships and planes left to finish the invasion on Port Moresby and retreated.
