Illustrated throughout, this atlas is a history of the war in the Pacific told through text, maps and reconstructions showing battles, movements of fleets and armed forces, strategies, military and naval campaigns of the Allies and the Japanese. Although mainly dealing with the Second World War, it also discusses the pre-war period from 1918.
