From Pearl Harbor to V-J Day : the American Armed Forces in World War II by D. C James( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the first compact history of the U.S. armed forces in the greatest conflict in world history - a lucid and balanced account by two authoritative military historians. Examining the strategy, logistics, high command, operations, and home-front aspects of the World War II campaign, D. Clayton James and Anne Sharp Wells narrate the story in slightly more than two hundred pages, with a clarity and perspective that virtually any reader will appreciate. "The Second World War was history's largest war in numbers of nations and ground, sea, and air personnel," the authors write. "It was the first truly global war, with active theaters of operations in the Atlantic, Western Europe, the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, the Middle East, North Africa, Northwest Africa, China, India, Burma, Southeast Asia, and virtually all of the Pacific." James and Wells cover all the theaters in which American forces were involved, from the Battle of the Atlantic in April 1941 to the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay. As well as describing the major campaigns and battles, and analyzing strategy and tactics, From Pearl Harbor to V-J Day contains crisp portraits of major military leaders and a background of political, diplomatic, economic, and social developments in the warring nations. The book also recounts the role of women and minorities in the military; the relation of armed forces personnel to the American home front; the impact of technology; and breakthroughs in communications intelligence. The authors evaluate both the virtues and flaws of the American command and the performance of its units, as well as the functioning and malfunctioning of the Allied coalition. In a final chapter, they sum up the impact of the war on American society and suggest that it is time to lay to rest the romanticized view of World War II that followed in the wake of the inconclusive Korean War and the bitter setback of Vietnam. "Far from being the best and most glorious of wars," they write, "it was the worst and most horrible."

The A to Z of World War II : the war against Japan by Anne Sharp Wells( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War II dominates world history today as it dominated world attention over 60 years ago. In spite of the alliances that bound many of the same participants, the war was essentially two separate but simultaneous conflicts: one involved Japan as the major antagonist and took place mostly in Asia and Pacific; and the other, initiated by Germany and Italy, was contested mainly in Europe, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic. The A to Z of World War II: The War Against Japan traces the brutal conflict from Japan's seizure of Chinese territory in 1931, through the onset of war with the Western Allies in 1941, to the use of atomic weapons by the United States in 1945. It also addresses the aftermath of the war including the formation of the United Nations and the American occupation of Japan. As the first of two volumes covering World War II, this volume concentrates on the war in Asia and the Pacific so the user benefits from the comprehensive explanations of the people, places, and events that shaped much of that region's 20th-century history
Historical dictionary of World War II : the war against Germany and Italy by Anne Sharp Wells( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This dictionary covers the complex and costly conflict that began when Germany, ruled by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, invaded neighboring Poland on 1 September 1939; and concluded when Germany surrendered on 7-9 May 1945, leaving much of the European continent in ruins and its population devastated. The war against Germany, Italy, and the other European Axis members was fought primarily in Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, East and North Africa, and the Atlantic Ocean. The Axis powers were defeated by the Allies, led by the "Grand Alliance" of Great Britain, the United States, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics."--Publisher's description
