US Naval War College – 8 Bells Lecture Series: Ian Toll: War in the Pacific Island, 1942-1944


Ian Toll, “The Conquering Tide: War in the Pacific Island, 1942-1944,” Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, April 7, 2016.

Part of Toll’s Pacific War Trilogy, this masterful history encompasses the heart of the Pacific War―the period between mid-1942 and mid-1944―when parallel Allied counteroffensives north and south of the equator washed over Japan’s far-flung island empire like a “conquering tide,” concluding with Japan’s irreversible strategic defeat in the Marianas.
