Overview

Graveyards of the Pacific is Dr. Robert Ballard�s compelling survey of the major WWII Pacific battlefields and graveyards, including Midway, Guadalcanal, and Truk Lagoon. This authoritative overview of the Pacific war begins with a thrilling account of Ballard�s search for an elusive midget sub sunk just prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, and ends with the American nuclear tests on Bikini Island, where captured German and Japanese craft were scuttled.

Graveyards of the Pacific features rare archival photographs, firsthand accounts of Ballard�s explorations, and the stories of survivors and eyewitnesses to the Pacific conflicts. In this lavishly illustrated and definitive book, Ballard, a pioneering marine scientist and explorer best known for his discovery of the Titanic, has succeeded in recreating a definitive period in American history.
