CAMPAIGNS OF COURAGE:
EUROPEAN AND PACIFIC THEATERS

dividing bar

The Road to Berlin: European Theater Galleries will present the larger context of the European front, helping visitors understand what preceded and what followed the landing on Normandy — connecting the battles in Europe to the essential, but lesser known campaigns and efforts that laid the groundwork for the D-Day invasions. It will offer visitors an understanding and appreciation of the challenges, strategies, and operations that paved the way for D-Day, as well as the bloody battles that followed in the Allied drive to Berlin.

The Road to Tokyo: Pacific Theater Galleries will follow the path that led from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Harbor by way of New Guinea and Southeast Asia, the Himalayas, Burma and the islands of the Pacific. Exhibits will explore the evolving strategy for fighting in Asia and the Pacific, examining the cultural differences and tremendous range of extreme conditions that confronted our soldiers.

Campaigns of Courage will also feature a “dog tag” interactive experience. A barcode imprinted “dog tag” will allow guests to follow the journey of an actual participant in the war. They will be able to track the actions of their “character” at a number of interactive kiosks throughout the exhibits for a more personal and engaging view of the war.
