On June 15, 1944, the United States invaded the Japanese-occupied island of Saipan, beginning the The Battle of Saipan of the Pacific campaign of World War II, fought on the island of Saipan in the Mariana Islands from June 15 to July 9, 1944. The Allied invasion fleet embarking the expeditionary forces left Pearl Harbor on June 5, 1944, the day before Operation Overlord in Europe was launched. The U.S. 2nd Marine Division, 4th Marine Division, and the Army's 27th Infantry Division (a unit of the New York Army National Guard), commanded by Lieutenant General Holland McTyeire "Howlin' Mad" Smith, defeated the 43rd Infantry Division of the Imperial Japanese Army (Japanese call sign: Honor Division {Homare Heidan}) commanded by Lieutenant General Yoshitsugu Saito. The battle was the fiercest and most desperate of the Pacific War up till that time, and it saw the largest banzai charge of the Pacific War on July 7; the Japanese knew the loss of the island would mean the Americans would build airstrips for B-29 Superfortress long-range strategic heavy bombers that were within range of the Japanese archipelago. Once the Battle of Saipan was lost and the Mariana Islands fell to the Americans, it brought about the downfall of the Tojo government, and it became apparent to the Japanese Imperial Headquarters that victory in the Pacific War had become highly unlikely.
