On one such island lives a French planter named Emile de Becque, whom the Navy wishes to employ as a scout to nearby Japanese held islands.

To accomplish this task, de Becque is approached by a US Navy nurse named Nellie Forbush. Amidst an outstanding musical score, and breathtaking scenery, the drama of "South Pacific" unfolds.In earlyin the South Pacific, the US Navy began using Section T’s fuse against the Japanese air force.

Many rich and well-developed fields cover its history, among them the histories of Pacific Islanders, of Asian and European migration and empire, of settler societies from Russia to New Zealand, of both the North and the South Pacifics, and of the Pacific Rim.
