Airbase Locations

As is the case with all long marches, they must begin with a single first step. Guadalcanal was that first step. The long march was to Tokyo and it's about to begin again. At dawn the Marines will hit the beach and secure the airfield there. If all goes well it will be renamed Henderson field. If the Americans continue to have their way eventually all tthe islands known as the Solomon Islands will be theirs. Command either the Japanese or American land, sea and ground forces and rewrite the history of this critical struggle.

I am not discounting you personal experience of being there, on the ground, looking at the terrain first-hand, but the needs of a military at times of war usually find a way to make something happen.

While normal circumstances would make building airstrip in those place impractical, all the rules go out the window when it comes to winning a war.

I don't think that they would go inland at all.

If they were to try at all on one of those island, it would be along the shore.

But I do understand your point. Not every island was going to have a place for the building of an airfield. No matter what kind of work was attempted, some were just not suitable.
