Major Fleet-versus-Fleet Operations in the Pacific War, 1941-1945, 2e , studies three major naval operations of World War II. These three, initiated by imperial Japan, resulted in the battles of the Coral Sea, Midway/Aleutians, and the Philippine Sea. Along with ample background on geographic and strategic context, the author, Dr. Milan Vego, gives detailed accounts of the unfolding actions, utilizing much primary-source material from American and Japanese archives. Finally, and most valuably, the author identifies lessons learned for naval operational art, lessons of more than historical interest for today's U.S. Navy.

The book provides an operational-art perspective to stimulate interest in the study of the theory and practice of major naval operations through case studies.  High school students pursuing naval reaearch about World War II, historians, especially military historians, university students pursuing course work in history, military science, and the U.S. Navy or World War II may find this to be a beneficial resource.
