New Pacific War Alternate History with WW2DB Contribution
Following the format of a panelist discussion, Jim Bresnahan gathered a group of historians, veterans, and WW2 enthusiasts to explore the "what if" scenarios of the war in his upcoming title Refighting the Pacific War. What if the Port Moresby attack was canceled so all six Japanese fleet carriers could be used for the Midway operation? Could Tarawa been bypassed in light of the heavy casualties incurred in the conquest? On Okinawa, was Simon Buckner's decision to attack the Japanese head-on the correct one? Bresnahan provided an informed look at how the Pacific War might have unfolded differently through these thought-provoking questions. The book is scheduled for release in Sep 2011.
WW2DB Managing Editor C. Peter Chen contributed to the book as one of the panelists.
