by Jonathan Lewis, Benjamin Steele, Ben Steele
     
 


The war in the Pacific was not just between Japan and America; it was also Britain's forgotten war and one of the dirtiest conflicts in living memory. Hell in the Pacific is a revisionist examination of that conflict, tracing the use of horrific torture and propaganda, not only by the Japanese but, controversially, by the Americans and the Allies as well.
