Book Description Department of the Army, Washington, D. C., 1984. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Xvi, 418 pages, maps (4 folding) , green cloth, very good. Originally published in 1959, CMH Pub 5-5. New foreword by Brig. General Douglas Kinnard. From the preface: "The reduction of Rabaul was accomplished by a gigantic double envelopment which required closely co-ordinated land, sea, and air operations by the armed forces of the United States and her Pacific allies. This volume, like the others in the series, attempts to explain in detail the part played by the U. S. Army ground forces and to make clear, by summary, the contributions of all forces and nations. The CARTWHEEL battles differed from those of the two earlier campaigns, Guadalcanal and Papua, that were directed toward the reduction of Rabaul. In Guadalcanal and Papua the antagonists, more evenly matched than in later campaigns, strained themselves to bring relatively small ground forces to bear on narrow fronts, so that great issues hinged on the outcome of regimental and battalion actions. A study of those campaigns, therefore, quite properly focuses on tactics. During the period covered by this book the Allied commanders could employ superior forces over a vastarea while the Japanese had no recourse but to entrench themselves in an effort to hold out and inflict as many casualties as possible. This volume attempts to analyze the techniques by which the Allies employed their strength to bypass fortified positions and seize weakly defended but strategically important areas, or, in the apt baseball parlance used by General MacArthur, to "hit 'em where they ain't." It is, therefore, a study in strategy and high command as well as in tactics." ; 414 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 41299
