Book Review: The First 24 Hours of War in the Pacific

Archives

by Donald J. Young

Shippensburg, PA: Burd Street Press, 1998. 1998. x 178 pp. Illus, maps, biblio, index. $24.95. ISBN:1-57249-079-9

Though the book is short, the author manages to say a great deal about the opening day of the Pacific War. Each of the dozen chapters deals with a different place, such as Shanghai, Wake, Washington, and Malaya. The book includes the longest treatment available of the surrender of the North China Marines, the fight for Guam, and so forth. Valuable for anyone interested in the Pacific War.
