The former British ruled Gilbert Islands colony, sprawling across 5 million sq km of central Pacific Ocean, had become independent in 1979 largely unnoticed. The only reason Americans wouldhave had any reason to remember the nation of 33 low-lying, nutrient-poor atolls would have been for the blood 1943 battle of Tarawa.

John Richardson writing in the Pacific Business Guide (1987).
