LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Allen & Unwin / Maddison Press Book Canada. 1993. This is a powerful, poignant story of men and ships and war. The terror and confusion of night naval action is conveyed here in gripping chapters that describe first the bitter American defeat in the Battle of Savo Island and then the struggle to eventual victory in the climactic Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. We then descend in Ballard's submarine to view scenes of American, Australian, and Japanese ships lying together on the ocean floor, their guns still eerily pointing at each other. With over 300 haunting pictures of the wrecks are paired with photographs of the ships in their prime; a spectacular full-page foldout reveals the USS Quincy and the Canberra, painted in accurate detail by maritime artist Ken Marschall. Full-color maps and diagrams plus a host of paintings and present-day photographs help to both re-create this extraordinary chapter in the history of the Pacific war and convey the excitement of modern underwater exploration. Illustrated dust jacket over blue cloth covered end boards. Near fine condition. 228pp. 285 x 220 mm
