Pfennigwerth, Ian
By 1945, MacArthur's forces had advanced from Papua to the Philippines and to Borneo. The majority of the troops, supplies, and equipment for this campaign were transported by sea, and MacArthur's success was based on 22 amphibious assaults. Soldiers and Marines did the ground fighting and MacArthur's air forces eventually ruled the skies, but it was the ships of the United States and Australian navies that delivered them to the battlefronts and supported them. This book reveals much of the RAN's war little reported upon. Tiny by comparison with the USN, the RAN more than compensated by commanding all the hydrographic surveying for MacArthur's shipping and amphibious assaults, and shouldered the major responsibility for protecting MacArthur's convoys. The RAN bombarded enemy positions, drove off Japanese reinforcements and harassed enemy coastal shipping. RAN Coast Watchers collected crucial intelligence; Beach Commandos directed men and material across assault beaches, often delivered by RAN landing ships. RAN ships shuttled troops and equipment, rescued downed airmen and swept enemy mines. Australian sailors fought and sometimes died in battles against kamikaze aircraft in the Philippines and in routing the Japanese Fleet at Surigao. Wherever MacArthur's troops fought, the RAN was there. When the fighting stopped the RAN facilitated the surrender of Japanese forces and finally brought our troops home. 208pp.

Balkoski, Joseph
By 1945, the US Army had sixty-eight infantry divisions, forty-two of which fought in the great campaign in north-west Europe that began with the amphibious landings on D-Day and ended eleven months later with Germany's surrender. This book examines the experience of one infantry division -- the 29th -- during forty-five days of combat from Omaha Beach on D-Day to the liberation at St Lô. Using interviews, official records and unit histories and supplementing his narrative with meticulously detailed maps, Balkoski follows the 29th from the bloody landings at Omaha through the hedgerows of Normandy, illustrating the brutal realities of life on the front line.304pp.
