The Two-Ocean War: A Short History of the United States Navy in the Second World War

Originally published in 1963, this classic, single-volume history draws on Morison s definitive 15-volume <em>History of United States Naval Operations in World War II</em>. More than a condensation, this book highlights the major components of the larger work: the preparation for war, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, the long war of attrition between submarines and convoys in the Atlantic, the battles of the Coral Sea and Midway, the long grind of Guadalcanal, the leapfrogging campaigns among the Pacific islands, the invasion of continental Europe, the blazes of glory at Leyte and Okinawa, and the final grudging surrender of the Japanese.
