This book takes up the story of America's war in the Pacific two years after Pearl Harbor and traces the momentous arc of the struggle's final year. In these pages, Douglas MacArthur makes good on his promise to the people of the Philippines, "I shall return"; gutsy U. S. Marines brave ferocious odds to invade the heavily fortified islands of Iwo Jima and Okinawa; and U. S. Physicists race to create a potent new weapon, a killing machine designed to end the killing. That the U. S. Could muster such an overwhelming response to the Japanese threat is remarkable in itself but more so given the war in Europe being equally difficult. These Americans from this generation earned and deserve the utmost respect. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 122 pages; 30782
