Description US Navy map of The Battle of the Eastern Solomons. Tracks of Allied (U.S.) forces are most likely fairly accurate. Tracks of Japanese forces are approximate and/or conjectured. The term "Jap" is used as shorthand for "Japanese" on the map. It's unknown whether this was used pejoratively in this publication or as an accepted abbreviation at that time.

A background to Schools Wikipedia

Wikipedia for Schools is one of SOS Children's many educational projects. SOS Children's Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. There are many ways to help with SOS Children's Villages.
