War in the Pacific

Richard Overy

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Format: Hardcover

War in the Pacific looks at the relentless war against Japan in the Pacific Islands which formed an integral part of eventual Allied victory in World War II. Setting the scene with the unprovoked Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour and the almost simultaneous attack on US bases on Guam and Wake Island, it then goes on to document the bloody battles fought in the jungle islands of Guadalcanal and the Philippines and the seas of the Pacific. As fortunes turned in 1942, the Allies fought hard to regain lost ground and the intensity of battle did not waver. It tells the story of the heroic actions of the men who toiled on the islands, the names of which have now become synonymous with bloodshed, hardship and unstoppable spirit - Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Rabaul, Guam, Iwo Jima and finally Okinawa. This fascinating and heart-wrenching story is brought to life by the addition of 15 pieces of carefully selected facsimile memorabilia, ranging from military orders, to propaganda leaflets dropped by the Japanese on US troops, to the personal diaries and letters home of both generals, officers and ordinary soldiers.
