The Last War Of Empires Japan And The Pacific War 1941-1945 Laurie Barber & Ken Henshall
HB medium Size 1999 First Edition 285 pages brilliant overall condition, although cover rubbed, marked, bumped shelf wear, secondhand book, pre-loved, book.
This is a book about war - its build-up, enactment & consequences. Focus of Pacific War 1941-45 between Japan and the American-led Allies. The wider perspective looks at warfare between empire-building powers in a shrinking modern world. The Pacific war eventually encompassed a land & oceanic space much greater than the European war. Key battles were at sea, clashes of aircraft carrier-borne warplanes where mother ships often never saw the opponents. Land battles were more personal encounters and losses more costly than equivalent sized encounters elsewhere, and they were accompanied by massacres and murders.... on both sides. Many books have been written on the Pacific theatre of WWII, This book distinguishes itself by placing the Pacific conflict in context of ambitious imperialist modern histories of the United States and Japan. It avoids automatic attribution of all the blame to the loser and introduces little known facts such as the Japanese attack on British forces in Malaya ninety minutes before Pearl Harbor, and draws attention to downplayed issues such as the extent of American imperialism in the Pacific. illustrated
