Triumph in the Pacific; The Navy's Struggle Against Japan by E. B Potter( Book )

9 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here in a single volume is one of the most authoritative, thoroughly documented accounts of the U.S. Navy's war against Japan. This is the story of the achievements, defeats, and victories of both the American and the Japanese navies as they met and battled in the greatest naval war of all time. This dramatic narrative brings to life both the glorious and the infamous--the decisive encounters at Midway ... Guadalcanal ... the Philippine Sea ... Leyte Gulf ... Iwo Jima ... Okinawa ... and the other points in the Pacific where history was made from 1941 to 1945. The information for TRIUMPH IN THE PACIFIC was gathered by historians at the Naval Academy at Annapolis under the direction of E.B. Potter, the Academy's Chairman of Naval History, and Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz who, as Commander in Chief Pacific Fleet and Pacific Ocean Areas, was a principal figure in the conflict. The book is marked by authenticity, conciseness, objectivity, and the accuracy of years of painstaking research and preparation
Triumph in the Atlantic : the naval struggle against the Axis by Chester William Nimitz( Book )

13 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is one of the most authoritative, thoroughly documented accounts of Allied naval action in the Atlantic and Mediterranean theaters of World War II. Normandy, Salerno, Operation Neptune, Morocco--this is the story of naval warfare such as the world had never before seen. TRIUMPH IN THE ATLANTIC presents the exciting narrative of Atlantic Surface Operations in all its dramatic detail, from the sinking of the British liner Athenia in 1939 to the devastating defeat of Germany in 1945. The Atlantic operation was a sea war that made the land war in Europe and Africa possible. It was a sea war fought over the range of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean against the worst hazards men could invent and the worst nature could provide. Through U-boat and surface attack, air threat and minefields, piercing cold and blazing heat, mountainous seas, blinding fog and cutting winds, ships carried out their missions of bringing the troops and supplies to the men and women who needed them. The fruit of years of painstaking preparation by historians at the U.S. Naval Academy, TRIUMPH IN THE ATLANTIC recalls not only the tactics and maneuvers of a wartime effort unmatched in history, but also the hopes and fears of the men who made it possible

Perhaps the most important problem that separates India and Pakistan today is their dispute over the ownership of the State of Jammu and Kashmir. This dispute flared twice into an open war in 1947-48 and 1965. In order to stop this dispute from developing into a world conflagration, initial efforts were made in 1948 by the United Nations to seek a peaceful solution to the basic dispute as to whether Kashmir should belong to India or to Pakistan. The author was a member of the UN Commission on India and Pakistan, and provides a first-hand account of the initial efforts of the United Nations to resolve the Kashmir issue
