AMBROSE, HUGH - The Pacific

Edinburgh, Canongate. 2010, First. (ISBN: 9781847678225). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy in a Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. xviii + 489 pages. 68 photographs. Historian Hugh Ambrose deepens the experience of the HBO miniseries The Pacific, produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks and broadcast on the Seven Network. These are the true stories of the men who put their lives on the line for their country, who were dispatched to the other side of the world to fight an enemy who preferred suicide to surrender; men who suffered hardship and humiliation in POW camps; men who witnessed casualties among soldier and civilian alike; and men whose medals came at a shocking price. Covering nearly four years of combat, with unprecedented access to military records, letters, journals, memoirs, photographs and interviews, this volume offers a unique historical perspective on the war against Japan-and ultimately the triumphant yet uneasy return home. PLEASE NOTE: A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.88 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST 24. Fine/Fine.
