• Illustrates US Army and Marine Corps armor operations during the Pacific Campaign of WWII

This latest in the Casemate Illustrated series explores American armor during the Pacific Campaign of WWII, from 1942-45. During this period there were over twenty major tank battles and operations where tanks provided heavy support to infantry units. These operations include the battle of Tarawa and the Bougainville Campaign. Relying heavily on first-person accounts, the strategies and tactics of the opposing forces are discussed.

This book also looks at the Pacific theater, and how American armor was employed with great success in that theater of war. Detailed information on American and Japanese armored forces, including development, equipment, capabilities, organization, and order of battle, is given.

REVIEWS excellent little survey of tank warfare in the Pacific. Guardia's narrative sticks closely to tank operations and he does not get bogged down in detail - he allows his profile pages to do that work.
