Win a copy of Great Naval Battles of the Pacific War

Great Naval Battles of the Pacific War book cover

Includes Midway, Coral Sea, Java Sea, Guadalcanal & Leyte Gulf

The key naval battles against Imperial Japan in the Pacific during the Second World War have been described many times by numerous diligent and skilful historians.

Such histories are, of course, the products of many years, even decades, of accumulated knowledge, but also of a received consensus of how the war played out to its, seemingly, inevitable conclusion. That of course is not how it was perceived at the time. The accounts here, compiled for and on behalf of the Admiralty, were written either during or immediately after the end of the war before historians had begun to give their assessments of these momentous events.
