Victory in the Pacific: Pearl Harbour to the Fall of Okinawa

by Karen Farrington

Victory in the Pacific: Pearl Harbour to the Fall of Okinawa Synopsis

On 7 December 1941, the Japanese navy attacked Pearl Harbour. Simultaneously, the Japanese army launched all-out assaults on Malaya, Hong Kong and the Philippines. The Japanese sphere of influence spread at a phenomenal rate. As nations of Asia collapsed one by one, and the British and US troops in the region were overwhelmed in short order, it seemed the Japanese dream of empire was about to be realized. Victory in the Pacific tells how the tide of Japanese victory was turned, and how the Allies fought their way the length and breadth of Burma and from island to island on their way to achieving final victory in the East.
