5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of the end for the japanese in the Pacific in World War 2, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Naval Battles for Guadalcanal, 1942: Clash for Supremacy in the Pacific (Campaign) (Paperback)
Excellent further publication in this series of historical essays covering Americas efforts to turn the tide of the second world war in the Pacific.Although America was faithful to the agreed"Germany First"policy for the conduct of the war,the ferocity of the Pacific conflict was extreme,and having initially taken a terrible battering at Pearl Harbour,the sea battles of 1942 and the American decision to stop the Japanese advance on Guadalcanal and start to roll them back,was pivotal for the final victory.
Its true to say that from mid 1942,the sheer productive power,and courage of the Americans,guaranteed that the Japanese would be defeated,and the Allies would go on to win the war together,but the horror of the Pacific campaign,because of the Japanese view of how a war should be conducted,made it uniquely awful for all those who had to participate in it. It was also the final nail in the coffin of British Imperialism in the Far East,never again would the Asian peoples bend the knee to the West.
