Battle Report: the End of an Empire
Battle Report: the End of an Empire
By Captain Walter Karig and Others
Rinehart, 1948, 532 pp

This fourth volume in a series on the U. S. Navy's part in the Pacific war comprises the epoch from Tarawa to Leyte Gulf, when Japan in effect lost her sea power. Like its predecessors, it is a useful interim report rather than definitive history.
