“To the End of the Earth: The US Army and the Downfall of Japan, 1945,” by John C. McManus
The dawn of 1945 finds a U.S. Army at its peak in the Pacific Theater. Allied victory over Japan is all but assured. The only question is how many more months — or years — of fight does the enemy have left. Learn from Dr. John C. McManus about the final fierce struggles of World War II, including Luzon, Manila, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa, and the Pacific War’s most prominent general, Douglas MacArthur, who faced complex challenges in Japan’s unconditional surrender and America’s lengthy occupation.
