The year 1992 will mark the 50th anniversary of the great Pacific naval battles in the Coral Sea and off Midway Island. Occurring within a month of each other, these "turning point" engagements brought an end to Japan's military expansion and six months of Allied defeat and retreat in the Pacific. In this first book-length, partially-annotated bibliography, Smith provides more than 1,300 citations to the growing literature on these major battles. Following sections devoted to reference works and sites, general histories, hardware, biography, combatants, and special studies, the volume has a separate section for each of the battles.
