The Pacific War: The Strategy, the Politics, and the Players
Roanoke's William B. Hopkins is a man of many facets. His profession was the law, both as an attorney and a state senator. He is a patriot, having served in the Marines in two wars, and it is that service that led him to provide us with histories of those two wars. In his first book, 'One Bugle, No Drums,' we were able to experience the misery of fighting -- and retreating from -- the Chinese during the Korean War. In 'The Pacific War,' Hopkins provides a detailed look at the causes of our war with Japan in the 1940s along with the American strategy to win that war. Unlike World War II in Europe, the combatants in the Pacific were ready for war. It will be of interest to many to know that America and Japan began planning for war between each other after the United States acquired the Philippines near the end of the 19th century. Hopkins carefully tracks the progress of Plan Orange, the plan to defeat the Japanese. Over the first four decades of the 20th century, Plan Orange was modified to meet changing conditions, but the basic philosophy -- take the war to the Japanese on their home islands -- remained consistent. The interaction of commanders in the Pacific Theater is especially interesting. Unlike the war in Europe, the Pacific war was fought almost entirely by American forces, and there was no Supreme Allied Commander to deliver the final order for battle. One Army general, especially, does not look very good when examined from the perspective of five decades. Also of interest was learning that internecine power squabbles almost caused the Marine Corps to become a subordinate division of the Navy. In spite of the Corps' performance in World War II, it would take the eruption of war on the Korean peninsula to make the War Department understand the value of the Marines. Like many who read extensively about World War II, my focus has been almost entirely the European Theater. Except for some major battles and distinguished commanders, I have had no comprehensive understanding of the Pacific Theater -- until now. "The Pacific War" will stand as an important comprehensive study of the structure and the philosophy that brought victory over Japan. The information is important to our understanding of the Pacific aspect of World War II, but the prose is what will make you want to read this book in one sitting. --Roanoke Timesprovides a deatiled look at the causes of conflict with Japan and anerica's stratagies to win. American plans for war with Japan had exsisted since the end of the 19th Century. Labeleld Plan Orange prior to WW2, the idea was to surround the Japanese islands and blockade trade. Author William Hopkins, a lawyer and politician in his day job, marks the progress of Plan Orange, which saw adjustments in the first four decades of the 20th Century but its tenent remained the same. He tracks the events that saw the build-up to war and the go-ahead for a US two-ocean navy. he informs us on the politics and politicaions, both in Washingotn and elswhere, that affected the condust of US strategy, providing an account of the action on land,sea, and in the air, from a strategic viewpoint using a regional approach in his analysis rather than a chronological one. 'The Pacific war' ofefrs an important, comprehensive one-volume study of the 'hows' and 'whys' that brought vistory over Japan. For Hopkins, who was fighting as a marine at Chosin Resevoir in the Korean War, this WWII odyssey represents a personal triumph, for he also served as a junior officer with the US Marines in the South Pacific during WW 2. he ahd always wanted to gain greater understanding of the 'big picture'. In providing that for himself he presents us with an epic, highly illuminating and compelling account of a vast campaign. --Warships International Fleet Review, April, 2010
