East Indies Campaign (1941-42)/Battle of Java Sea
Start Year
1942
End Year
1942

Description
The Battle of the Java Sea was a decisive naval battle of the Pacific campaign of World War II.

Allied navies suffered a disastrous defeat at the hand of the Imperial Japanese Navy, on 27 February 1942, and in secondary actions over successive days. The American-British-Dutch-Australian Command (ABDA) Strike Force commander—Rear-Admiral Karel Doorman—was killed. The aftermath of the battle included several smaller actions around Java, including the smaller but also significant Battle of Sunda Strait. These defeats led to Japanese occupation of the entire Netherlands East Indies.

The battle was the largest surface ship engagement since the Battle of Jutland in 1916.
