Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, The Pacific- 1941-43 is an accessible, insightful and authoritative introduction to the Allied counter-offensive against the Empire of Japan and Axis forces in the South Pacific.
Historian, author and broadcaster James Holland draws on the latest research and interviews with participants to bring colour, detail and a fresh perspective to the story.
Inside, you'll discover how tactics, organisation and new technologies were brought to bear, about the different challenges faced by both the Axis and the Allies, and, above all, the skill, bravery and endurance of those engaged in a contest that was of critical importance to the outcome of the war.
