Publisher's Summary

World War II in the Pacific: Pearl Harbor to Nagasaki tells the story of Iwo Jima and the long war in the Pacific, the people who affected its direction, and the many places that suffered from war yet survived and went on to prosper in peace. From General MacArthur and President Truman to Emperor Hirohito, the key players in the Pacific Theatre are profiled. Learn about aircraft carriers and the development of fission weapons; gain a deeper understanding of the Bataan Death March and the decision to use the atomic bomb; and hear about places including Guam, the Marshall Islands, and, of course, Iwo Jima.

The editors of the prestigious Encyclopaedia Britannica have created a four-hour collection of over 70 articles that tells the story of the Pacific Theatre of World War II, providing context and explaining the circumstances surrounding the pivotal battle for Iwo Jima. You'll learn about the events that led up to the battle, the effect it had on the remainder of the war, and much more. Encyclopaedia Britannica explores the events, places, and people involved, in order to give you a more thorough understanding of the significance of that historic flag-raising.

    "Choppy"

    One story would end and the next seemed to have little to do with the other
    Overall the experience was wonderful.
