Battling in the Pacific

Soldiering in World War II

Book - 2008
Rate this:
The U.S. troops who fought in the Pacific during World War II rallied after the attack at Pearl Harbor to fight many grueling battles with Japan. Author Susan Provost Beller brings the daily struggles of these troops to life with first-person accounts of battles against an enemy that did not believe in surrender. These stories combine the routines of military life and the logistics of fighting an island-hopping war far from home with tales of daring fighting in jungles. They chronicle the attacks by kamikaze pilots and the escapes by submarines dodging depth charges. These accounts give us a better understanding of how the U.S. troops turned initial defeat into final victory.
