9780810836389: Historical Dictionary of World War II

World War II dominates world history today as it dominated world attention over 60 years ago. In spite of the alliances that bound many of the same participants, the war was essentially two separate but simultaneous conflicts: one involved Japan as the major antagonist and took place mostly in Asia and Pacific; and the other, initiated by Germany and Italy, was contested mainly in Europe, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic.
The Historical Dictionary of World War II: The War Against Japan traces the brutal conflict from Japan's seizure of Chinese territory in 1931, through the onset of war with the Western Allies in 1941, to the use of atomic weapons by the United States in 1945. It also addresses the aftermath of the war including the formation of the United Nations and the American occupation of Japan. As the first of two volumes covering World War II, this volume concentrates on the war in Asia and the Pacific so the user benefits from the comprehensive explanations of the people, places, and events that shaped much of that region's twentieth-century history.
Perfect for research in military history, Asian history, World War II history, 20th century world history, and international relations. Includes and extensive bibliography for easy reference.

About the Author:

Anne Sharp Wells presently works with the George C. Marshall Foundation and serves as the Assistant Editor of the Journal of Military History. She is also a past editor of the Newsletter of the World War Two Studies Association. She graduated from Mississippi State University with both her B.A. and M.A. in American History and received her M.L.S. from the University of Alabama.

From Library Journal:

The 13th volume in the publisher's "Historical Dictionaries of War, Revolution, and Civil Unrest" series, this reference contains 586 entries, from "airborne operations" to "Zero fighter plane." The author, assistant editor of The Journal of Military History, is also writing a companion dictionary of the war against Germany in World War II. People, places, battles, weapons, logistics, intelligence, propaganda, and prisoners of war are all adequately treated, with coverage spanning from the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931 to the Chinese civil war in the late 1940s. Entries are necessarily concise, but the dictionary is ably complemented by a superb Pacific war overview essay, a chronology, two appendixes, and an expansive bibliography. The book is so well organized that even the bibliography has its own table of contents. From well-known facts to the obscure, this book provides a wealth of compact information, making it a useful resource for research and reference work.
