NotesImage 1: See LSE3436 for published cartoon. News: Feb. 29. American troops today
stormed ashore at Los Negros in the Admiralty Islands. This new assault on the Japanese
position in the Pacific came as the climax of a month of Allied successes. The assault,
codenamed "Operation Brewer" rushed troops towards the beaches in fast destroyers instead
of the customary slow landing craft.... The Allied offensive has made good progress during
the last few weeks. American bombers began by raiding Guam for the first time since the
Japanese captured this US base shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbour.... Ten days ago
US soldiers, sailors and marines successfully invaded Eniwetok Atoll in the Marshall
Islands... [Chronicle of the 20th century] Image 2: See DL2132 for original artwork and
