The Invasion of Guadalcanal was the first offensive battle of WWII.

The Invasion of Morroco was the second offensive ground battle beginning 32 days later on 8 November 1942.

Ground combat on Wake and the Phillipenes began in December of 1941, but was defensive in nature, and ill fated at best since both of these Pacific bastions were lost to the Japanese.

That would be Pearl Harbor. It was a surprise attack, but the US fought back, sinking Japanese subs and shooting down aircraft. Pearl Harbor brought the US into WWII.
