about this book

This new history explores each of the battles the United States fought against Imperial Japan, from the naval clashes at Midway and Coral Sea to the desperate, bloody fighting on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Each chapter in the book reveals the horrors of battle and the persistent determination on both sides to wrest victory from certain defeat.

Using a vast collection of wartime imagery and complete with dozen of full-color maps, The Road to Victory is an important, new visual guide. It ultimately stands as a great addition to military history and strategy courses, especially those related to the Pacific Theatre of World War II.
