From Pearl Harbor to Leyte Gulf, from Midway to Okinawa, the War in the Pacific between 1941 and 1945 was primarily a naval conflict on an enormous scale. Precipitated in hostilities as the result of a misunderstanding, the United States became embroiled in a titanic struggle which ultimately left Japan crushed and humiliated, confirmed America as the strongest power on Earth and ushered in the atomic age. Dan Van Der Vat’s riveting and lucid analysis unravels the intricacies of this complex and epic confrontation and provides a detailed picture of the politics and events that shaped the outcome of what was the largest naval conflict in history.
