US Naval History & World War II

American Samoa, like many other South Sea islands, is a tropical paradise in the South Pacific. But beneath the dramatic mountain peaks and swaying palm trees, lies a strong U.S. Naval and World War II connection that lasted a good part of the late 1800s and over half the 1900s – spanning nearly 90 years. Today, all that is left of this history are some historic buildings, gun sites, stories and photos of an era when the United Sates took control of the eastern Samoan Island. It was at a time when the European powers were diving up the Pacific and then sought to stop Japan as it began its invasion of the Pacific.  Pick up a copy of the American Samoa World War II, US Naval History brochure and explore.
