Overview

During World War II, the world bore witness to the greatest naval campaign in military history-the battle in the Pacific. This comprehensive, A-to-Z guide covers all aspects of the war from multiple perspectives, including never-before revealed insights from Japanese military figures and civilians, African-American soldiers, and women who were involved in or affected by the war. The Pacific War Encyclopedia introduces key personalities and portrays behind-the-scenes actions of the battles, while human interest stories lend readers insight into the profound affects of the Pacific War experience. Also included are significant topics rarely covered in works on the Pacific War, such as how the government policies, internal politics, production capabilities, and economies of the warring nations affected the progress and outcome of the war.
