August 11, 2017: AmericanStudying the Pacific: Nagasaki
[August 7th marks the 75th anniversary of the start of the World War II Battle of Guadalcanal, the first major Allied offensive against Japan. So this week I’ll AmericanStudy five aspects of the war’s Pacific Theater, starting with that 1942 battle.]
For the final post in this series, and two days after the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki, I wanted to share this August 2015 Talking Points Memo piece of mine on that bombing. I’d love any and all comments and responses, of course.
Special birthday series starts this weekend,
PS. What do you think? Other aspects of the Pacific Theater you’d highlight?
