The Battle of Guadalcanal  Guadalcanal was the first major offensive and a decisive victory for Allies in the Pacific theater. With Japanese troops stationed in this section of Solomon Islands, U.S. marines launched a surprise attack in August 1942 and took control of an air base under construction. Reinforcements were funneled to the islands as a series of land and sea clashes unfolded, and both sides endured heavy losses to their warships contingents. However, the Japanese suffered a far greater toll of casualties, forcing their withdrawal from Guadalcanal by February 1943 Hope This Helps :)
