From the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, this superbly illustrated history explores the Pacific War in its entirety.
The Pacific War takes an in-depth look at the whirlwind Japanese victories of 1941-42, when her armies and navies conquered Hong Kong, Burma, Malaya, the Philippines, and the Dutch East Indies, and analyzes how the Allies, specifically the US, organized a counterattack. Full-color maps following the movement of forces enhance the authoritative text, and artworks display the uniforms, armored fighting vehicles, aircraft, and ships used in the campaign; specifications tables accompany the vehicle, ship, and aircraft images. This expert, accessible, and colorful volume will appeal to military enthusiasts.
