"The Pacific" is a stunning and evocative reminder of the personal heroism and epic battles over and on seas, islands and mainland, as told by those who were there. Magnificent.

A Unique Collection of Eyewitness Accounts
A Lasting Tribute to the Veterans in Their Own Words
The Pacific: Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal, the first in the planned 10-volume collection WAR STORIES: World War II Firsthand, takes a unique approach to the history of World War II by weaving stories of combat veterans into an event by event history of the war.
Includes the words of veterans of all forces—in all theaters of operation, Allied and Axis alike—illustrated by high-quality photos, graphic images and detailed maps. Their words, augmented by quotes from military and political leaders and modern historical thought, give a complete picture of the war from those who fought it. More than two hundred veterans have been identified and interviewed and others are coming forward as the project unfolds.
This first volume is lavishly designed, printed in full color throughout, and includes 11 originally-designed maps with detailed legends. Containing more than 250 pages in a handsome 9” x 12” hardcover format with dust jacket, this volume will be a treasured volume on your bookshelf for years to come.
Makes a great gift for your favorite World War II enthusiast!
