Osprey Special Editions (Military) : The Pacific War Companion : From Pearl Harbor to Hiroshima

'The Pacific War Companion'is published to commemorate the 60th anniversary of V-J Day and brings together the perspectives and insights of world-renowned military historians. From the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor through the release of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the conflict in the Pacific was characterised by amazing tactical innovations in amphibious warfare and horrific battles that raged in the unforgiving climate of the island jungles. Each chapter in this book focuses on a different aspect of this conflict, from the planning of operations to the experiences of the men who were there. Text by Jon Guttman with illustrations by Harry Dempsey.
