The Pacific War : 1941-1945
by John Costello




Overview -

John Costello's The Pacific War is regarded as a classic. ... Unearths new and fascinating material. --The Times (London)

The definitive one-volume account of World War II in the Pacific theater--the first book to weave together the separate stories of the fighting in China, Malaya, Burma, the East Indies, the Philippines, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, and the Aleutians.

The Pacific War provides a brilliantly clear account of one of the most massive movements of men and arms in history--and meticulously analyzes the complex social, political, and economic causes that underlay the war, enabling the reader to better understand the conflict as the inevitable result of a series of historical events.

Captured in breathtaking detail are the bloody battles--Midway, Guadalcanal, Okinawa, Iwo Jima--that ultimately shaped the modern world. These fiery clashes of great navies and armies still resonate loudly to this day. The Pacific War is the complete story of possibly the most cataclysmic chapter in the annals of human conflict--from its explosive opening salvo at Pearl Harbor to its ominous conclusion in the mushroom clouds of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
