BATTLE REPORT V: Victory in the Pacific

Email this review


The final volume in the popular war history, paralleling and complementing the detailed operational history compiled by Morison. In the final terrific months of war, much that was most dramatic in its pattern came to completion,- the return to the Philippines, with all its many facets, battles, discouragements and successes; the unexpected onslaught of the ""Kamikaze""; Iwo Jima, Okinawa, the Admiralties, the South China Sea sweep, the bombing of the Japanese home islands, fast carrier force action, submarine warfare, the little know Borneo campaign, the establishment of weather stations in China, the grand finale in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and capitulation. A masterly summary with enough of news value, enough of anecdotal and human interest, to add color, drama, motion to the record of history.
