Twelve world-renowned military historians provide a fresh re-evaluation of the events, troops, strategies, and tactics of the Pacific campaign of World War II. Despite unforgiving conditions and brutal jungle fighting that drained resources and morale, the American advance across the ocean towards the Japanese homelands drove the evolution of ever more innovative amphibious warfare, and increasingly desperate Japanese countermeasures.
Bringing together American, Japanese, Australian, and British perspectives, each chapter of The Pacific War focuses on a different aspect of the conflict - from operational planning to the experiences of the men on the ground, and from the assault on Pearl Harbor to the atomic annihilation of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
