Comments: Told for the first time in a single volume, is the story of the four years of bitter fighting against the Japanese following their surprise attack on Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941.
The fighting throughout the Pacific was very different from that on the age-old battlefields of Europe and the Middle East. the Japanese, masters of the art of jungle combat, fought with a speed and fanaticism that completely overwhelmed the Allied Forces in the early months and took them to the brink of complete control of the Southern Region.
The War With Japan will be of immense interest to the generation who were actively involved in this war, and also to the generation who have grown up since the days of Hiroshima. It is illustrated by thirty-two pages of photographs – some of which are reproduced here for the first time – and eleven maps, and at the end of each chapter there is a list of recommended books for further reading.
