The Gilbert Islands, now
known as Kiribati, were established as a British protectorate in 1892. The Gilbert
were principally occupied by Micronesians. In 1915 Britain expanded their influence to
include the Ellice
Islands. The Gilbert & Ellice Islands became a British colony. During the
early 1940's Japan occupied the
Gilbert Islands. This resulted in violent warfare with the
Allied forces reconquering this region.
