   schema:description "The War Against Japan is the U.S. Army's official U.S. pictorial record of the Asian and Pacific campaigns of World War II. It contains nearly six hundred of the most dramatic photographs featuring all branches of the U.S. armed forces and even contains a number from Japanese archives. Specially selected by Army historians to show important terrain features, types of equipment and weapons, living and weather conditions, military operations, and details of life in the front lines, these photographs reveal every aspect of the U.S. serviceman's unforgettable experience. The War Against Japan depicts training in Hawaii, Australia, and New Caledonia; defeat in the Philippines; the campaigns in the Solomons, New Guinea, New Britain, the Admiralties, the Aleutians, the Gilberts, the Marshalls, and the Marianas; the return to the Philippines; the assaults of Iwo Jima and Okinawa; and the operation of the supply line to China through India and Burma. It provides, as only such a comprehensive photographic volume can, an intimate understanding of the war from the combatant's perspective."@en ;
