THE PACIFIC CAMPAIGN: The U.S.-Japanese Naval War 1941-1945. A vivid account of the greatest naval battles ever fought. Fast-paced, meticulously researched...has all the elements of a spy thriller with eyewitness testimony.
THE PACIFIC CAMPAIGN: The U.S.-Japanese Naval War 1941-1945. By Dan van der Vat. Dan van der Vat's naval histories have been acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic as 'definitive,' 'extraordinary,' and 'vivid and harrowing.' Now he turns to the greatest naval conflict in history: the Pacific campaign of World War II and a vivid account of the greatest naval battles ever fought. Drawing on neglected archives of firsthand accounts from both sides, the author interweaves eyewitness testimony with sharp, analytical narration to provide a penetrating reappraisal of the strategic and political background of both American and Japanese forces, as well as a major reassessment of the role of intelligence on both sides. 'A vivid account of the greatest naval battles ever fought and a thoughtful analysis of why war came...marked by fresh insights and new material.'___Stephen E. Ambrose. 430 pages of text + 24 pages of photographs. Maps. Indexed.
