World War Ii: The Price of Empire

The Beginning Of The End

Season 1, Episode 9 of 13

The Allied leaders, including Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin, are confident enough to meet for the first conference in which the coordination of their efforts is discussed, at Casablanca. As 1943 moves into 1944 the momentum behind the Allies simply increased. An entire Japanese Division is destroyed at sea (The Battle of the Bismark Sea) and a combined Chinese offensive - General Sun Li-jen attacking from the Indian border and General Wei Lihuang from Yunnan and linking their armies at Mong-Yu - secures the vital Ledo Supply Road.
