Click to EnlargeOKINAWA 1945. By Chronicles the land, sea and air battles at Okinawa, the last campaign of WWII in the Pacific, a bloody affair that convinced the US that an invasion of Japan would prove so costly that deployment of atomic weapons was a sensible alternative.

It developed new tactics for fighting from fire-port caves dug into hilltops and ridges, with interlocking fires, and headquarters caves built underground well in the rear. Includes the Japanese Order of Battle, and presents a rare look at the battle from surviving Japanese troops.

US ground forces covered in this book include: US Marines, US Army's 7th Infantry Division, 27th Infantry Division, 77th Infantry Division, 96th Infantry Division, Tenth Army.

Well illustrated with maps, photograghs, drawings. Large 8"x10" volume.
