Format: Hardcover
The war against Hitler has occupied over 80% of the literature of World War II, and because of the particular difficulties posed to scholars by the Pacific War, this is likely to continue.

The present work, based on the procedings of a 1991 conference at the University of New Orleans Eisenhower Center, redresses the imbalance a bit, and focuses on some aspects of the struggle relatively unknown to most readers.

The nine essays include a study of the political implications of MacArthur's Southwest Pacific Campaign, the fate of the defenders of Wake Island, the contributiion of nurses, submarine operations, and others, all expertly researched and clearly written with the non-specialist in mind.

Highly recommended; a fine contribution to World war II scholarship.

Format: Hardcover
A collection of excellent papers on several points of the Pacific war. This is serious history, not revisionist nonsense. It does place MacArthur in a less-favorable light--correctly in my view, but it gives the reasons, you decide for yourself. It also explains that General Arnold, Army Air Corps commander, did NOT want to use the atomic bomb because he wanted the B-29 campaign, not a new superweapon, to get the credit for ending the war. (He felt that public perception of conventional bombing as the decisive weapon would guarantee elevation of the Air Corps to status of an Air Force as a separate military arm equal to the Navy and Army.) This is about the war, not individual battles. It is probably not for casual interest, but even long time, serious students of the war will find new and interesting material in it.
