World War II in the Pacific

From Pearl Harbor to Nagasaki

Series: The United States at War

By R. Conrad Stein

When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the United States was thrust into World War II. The war with Japan would last four grueling years. Bold leaders, such as General Douglas MacArthur and President Franklin Roosevelt, would lead the United States to victory. Author R. Conrad Stein explores the historic carrier-based naval battles, the “island hopping” campaigns, the home front, and the beginning of the atomic age.

"The authors creatively utilize quotes from political leaders, soldiers, and citizens of countries fighting in the wars."

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2012

". . . a solid addition to any history collection."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, March 2011

"These titles would be a nice addition to libraries that have research units on these time periods."

Library Media Connection, May/June 2011

"Stein is particularly good at weaving the thoughts and words of actual battlefield participants into a cohesive narrative. Further, Stein has a gift for descriptive language and uses it to help readers truly understand the brutality and effort that were part and parcel of the Pacific War. This approach results in a fine historical work and one that will capture the interest of its readers."
