About this title


WW II Wrecks of Palau is the result of diving exploration and the compilation of research material accumulated spanning a period of sixteen years beginning in 1974. The narrative of the book embodies the descriptions of the U.S. air raids on the important Japanese World war II navel base at Palau from three important operations that the majority of the aircraft and shipwrecks resulted from. These included Operation Desecrate One, the Snapshot Operation and the preliminary actions of the Stalemate II Operation.The story line follows the attacks from the carrier strike aircraft launchings to the sinking of ships and the shooting down of aircraft using ship and aircraft action reports, action photos, communication and photo intelligence files, and finally underwater photo documentation, and the description of the ship and aircraft wrecks. Originally I wanted to deal solely with the aircraft and shipwrecks, however after much positive feedback from my previous book, I decided to include detailed information and illustrations regarding the Japanese occupation of the Islands, and descriptions of their installations and illustrations showing their locations. Local place names used in historical documentation of the battles at Palau are inconsistent with modern day names, therefore modern day names follow in brackets incorporating the correct Palau name and also the historical.
