"From Pearl Harbor to Hiroshima" looks at the relentless war against Japan in the Pacific Islands which formed an integral part of the eventual Allied victory in World War II. It tells the story of the heroic actions of the men who toiled on the islands - the names of which have now become synonymous with bloodshed, hardship, and unstoppable spirit - which eventually resulted in victory for the Allies. This fascinating and heart-wrenching story is brought to life by the addition of 12 carefully selected facsimile pieces of memorabilia.
