"War In The Pacific 1941-1945" looks at the relentless war against Japan in the Pacific Islands which formed an integral part of eventual Allied victory in World War II. Setting the scene with the unprovoked Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the almost simultaneous attack on US bases on Guam and Wake Island it then goes on to document the bloody battles fought in the jungle islands of Guadalcanal and the Philippines and the seas of the Pacific. This fascinating and heart wrenching story is brought to life by the addition of 16 carefully selected facsimile pieces of memorabilia ranging from military orders, to propaganda leaflets dropped by the Japanese on US troops to the personal diaries and letters home of both generals, officers and ordinary soldiers. Memorabilia includes: Franklin D. Roosevelt's draft, with hand-written amendments, for his 'Day of Infamy' speech; the order to MacArthur to abandon the Philippines in 1941; and, urgent messages sent by Marines on the beaches of Tarawa.
