Japan's war : the great Pacific conflict, 1853 to 1952 by Edwin P Hoyt( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This account of the Pacific arena in World War II brings fresh insight to the crucial questions: Why did Japan start the war in the Pacific? Why was the U.S. unprepared to meet the challenge? Tracing the history of Japanese aggression from 1853, the author sheds new light on the "China Question," the rape of Hong Kong, the Bataan Death March, and the murder camps of the East Indies. He analyzed Japan's policy of hakko ichiu--all eight corners of the world under one roof--that precipitated their military build-up. Japan's historical rivalry with the U.S.--more recognized there than here--made conflict, if not inevitable, at least probable

The story of the siege by the acclaimed author of Hitler\'s War In 199 Days, acclaimed historian Edwin P. Hoyt depicts the epic battle for Stalingrad in all its electrifying excitement and savage horror. More than the bloodiest skirmish in history-a momentous conflict costing three million lives-the siege was a hinge upon which the course of history rested. Had the Red Army fallen, the Nazi juggernaut would have rolled over Russia. Had the German\'s not held out during those last few months, Stalin would have painted Europe red. Now, over 50 years after the most extraordinary battle of the second millenium, the truth about this decisive moment is finally revealed

Yamamoto is an exhaustively researched and compelling biography of the Japanese Naval genius and war hero Isoroku Yamamoto, the Architect of the Pacific War.

After disagreeing about whether to open an Italian front at all, the Allies began their campaign by invading Sicily in July 1943. In September the battle shifted to Italy, where the Allies landed at Salerno and Taranto and then pushed inland only to encounter unexpectedly stiff German resistance. Not until June 1944, after landing at Anzio in January and subsequently destroying the monastery at Monte Cassino, did the Allies finally break the German line and capture Rome. By then the invasion of France had overshadowed the Italian campaign, ensuring that its final ten months would indeed be a backwater war. - Back cover
