Summary
This book 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 Harbor and the almost simultaneous attack on US bases on Guam and Wake Island, the bloody battles fought in the jungle islands of Guadalcanal and the Philippines and the seas of the Pacific are documented.
