Pacific War: Day by Day/Davison, John/Hardb/0760320675/S055-D1
On December 7, 1941, Japanese aircraft attacked US ships moored in Pearl Harbor, thus starting a war in the Pacific that would last for nearly four years; witness the first, and so far only, use of atomic bombs in warfare; and see Japan brought to her knees.
The Pacific War: Day by Day is a chronological approach to this conflict, allowing the reader to see at a glance the key battles on land, at sea, and in the air. These include Guadalcanal, Midway, Kohima, Imphal, Leyte Gulf, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Each major engagement is illustrated by map for ease of understanding. In addition to the battles and campaigns, the book includes boxes on all the main commanders who led the Japanese and Allied armies during the war, such as MacArthur, Nimitz, and Yamamoto.
Complementing the text are over 350 photographs that illustrate the nature of the war. These include kamikaze attacks on US shipping, the aftermath of banzai charges mounted by Japanese troop0s, and the destruction wrought by US bombers on Japan in 1944-45.
