Based on numerous diaries and letters, this book depicts the story of American soldiers in Asia and the Pacific during World War II. The author explores American soldiers' attitudes to the Far East and how they imagined it as a frontier similar to the Wild West of America. The Far East proved to be less conamorable than the American West and the author explores how Americans' experience in Asia and the Pacific presaged the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
