Earl H. Ellis was a U.S. Marine Corps officer, both brilliant and eccentric, who devised, in 1921, the fundamental Allied strategy for World War II in the Pacific: a campaign of "island-hopping" closer and closer to Japan. He died under mysterious circumstances while visiting a Japanese island. [1]
