Publishers Description: "Of all the battles fought in the Pacific in World War II, nine stand out as the most important. The nine battles presented in this highly illustrated and authorative work edited by the noted naval historian, Antony Preston, are those which were noteworthy in both their scope and significance throughout the three and a half year os war against Imperial Japan. Pearly Harbor drew the United States into the war with a surprise attack. Coral Sea checked the Japanese advance.Midway turned the tide of war in favor of the Allies. Guadalcanal, Philippine Sea, Leyte Gulf , the air war against Japan, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa broke the back of Imperial Japan and brought victory to the Allies. The hand-to-hand fighting, the atomic holocaust and the epic naval battles are told brilliantly by an international team of historians and illustrated with hundreds of photographs, technical illustrations and maps, some of them n color, making this wwork a must for the library of any military historian or enthusiast whose interest is in World War II." --Jacket flap.
