Surprised by the Allied offensive, the Japanese made several attempts between August and November 1942 to retake Henderson Field. Three major land battles, seven large naval battles (five nighttime surface actions and two carrier battles), and continual, almost daily aerial battles culminated in the decisive [[Naval Battle of Guadalcanal]] in early November 1942, in which the last Japanese attempt to bombard Henderson Field from the sea and land with enough troops to retake it was defeated. In December 1942, the Japanese abandoned further efforts to retake Guadalcanal and [[Operation Ke|evacuated their remaining forces]] by February 7, 1943 in the face of an offensive by the U.S. Army's [[XIV Corps (United States)|XIV Corps]], conceding the island to the Allies.

The Guadalcanal campaign was a significant strategic [[combined arms]] victory by Allied forces over the Japanese in the Pacific theatre. The Japanese had reached the high-water mark of their conquests in the Pacific, and Guadalcanal marked the transition by the Allies from defensive operations to the strategic offensive in that theatre and the beginning of offensive operations, including the [[Solomon Islands campaign|Solomon Islands]], [[New Guinea campaign|New Guinea]], and [[Pacific Ocean theatre of World War II|Central Pacific]] campaigns, that resulted in Japan's eventual surrender and the end of World War II.
