The decisive turning point in the whole Pacific War was the Battle of Midway, fought in early June 1942. Although it now seems inevitable that the Americans would turn back the Japanese tide of victory, it did not seem so at the time. The United States and its allies had suffered a series of setbacks which forced the American to defend Hawaii at Midway with only three aircraft carriers, one of which, Yorktown, had recently undergone extensive repairs after the battering she took at the Battle of the Coral Sea one month earlier

The first Iraq War, 1914-1918 : Britain's Mesopotamian campaign by A. J Barker( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Allah made Hell, runs the Arab proverb, he did not find it bad enough, so he made Mesopotamia - and added flies. What was a British Army doing in this Godforsaken place and how had it all come about? A.J. Barker's masterful retelling of the story of Britain's first Iraq war in 1914 is a masterpiece of military history that provides many answers to the endless problems and realities encountered in Iraq since 2003. Prestige and power played a major role then as they still do today. If the British were dislodged from the Shatt-al-Arab, the effects would undoubtedly have reverberated throughout the whole of the Eastern world
