Children's LiteratureDuring World War II some theaters of operation surpassed in ferocity the general and horrific nature of that global conflict. In the Pacific clashing armies not only represented political goals but racial hatred as well. In places like Guadalcanal, Okinawa, Tarawa, and the Philippines, war was waged in a no-holds fashion dissimilar to the way it was conducted in several other theaters of operation. The Allied and Japanese forces that clashed generally offered little if any quarter to one another. The story of these brutal events is presented in this volume of the "Atlas of Conflicts" series. The story is amplified by photographs, maps, and numerous quotes. This fine book will appeal to readers with an eye for military history. 2005, World Almanac Library, Ages 12 up.
