Abstract:

An incisive look at the role the warplane played in the war against Japan--aircraft that forever changed the tactics of conventional warfare. These winged warriors dealt a severe blow to the Japanese in some of the most famous battles of World War II ... Midway, Saipan and Truk. Also is the strategic battle for Iwo Jima ... nearly 7,000 Marines died to capture this desolate 8-square-mile island. But serving as an emergency base for our crippled bombers, it ultimately saved as many as 25,000 American lives by war's end.
