This latest in the Casemate Illustrated series explores American armor during the Pacific Campaign of WWII, from 1942-45. During this period, there were more than 20 major tank battles and/or operations where tanks provided heavy fire support to infantry units. These operations include the Battle of Tarawa and the Bougainville Campaign.

Relying heavily on first-person accounts, American Armor in the Pacific gives a detailed discussion on American and Japanese armored forces – including their development, equipment, capabilities, organization, and orders of battle, strategies, and comparative tactics.
