Bobcats, the Americans in Bora Bora, 1942-1946. February 17, 1942, the American armed forces invade the island of Bora Bora. From now on, this small French colony at the end of the world is fully involved in the Pacific War, the theater of major operations of the Second World War. Paradise, was the island of Bora Bora really strategic for the Bobcats engaged in titanic infrastructure projects? For the local populations hitherto spared, the war coming knocking on their door certainly offers them the wonders of the American way of life, but it imposes on them a defense system, restrictions on movement and supply constraints, not to mention promiscuity that is not always easy to manage between civilians and soldiers.
