BtN “Battle of the coral sea”


Red is Facts.

Blue is Insights.

Green is a question.

Black is a summary.


This video was about the battle of the coral sea and how Australia fought with the help of America against Japan. Three facts I learned were that in May 1942, hundreds of American troops joined Australia’s and went to sea to fight against Japan which is when the battle of the coral sea began. Japan’s plan was to take control over the whole Pacific region including Australia. The USA is more than 8000 miles or about 1300 km away from Australia. An insight I had was that many people believe the Battle of the Coral Sea saved Australia from invasion. Two questions I still have is Why did Japan want to take over Australia? And Why did america decide to help and get along well with Australia?
