The Battle of Christmas Island, was a small engagement which began on 31 March 1942, during World War II. Because of a mutiny by Indian soldiers against their British officers, Japanese troops were able to occupy Christmas Island without any resistance. However, the American submarine Seawolf caused severe damage to the Japanese cruiser Naka. Christmas Island was-at the time-a British possession under administrative control of the Straits Settlement, situated 161 nmi (185 mi; 298 km) south of Java.show more
