This is a scholarly account of the Royal Navy participation in the Pacific War. It concludes the late Arthur Marder's two-volume history of the Royal Navy and the imperial Japanese Navy in the decisive years 1936-1945. Before his death, Arthur Marder completed the first six chapters, and the second volume of this work has been completed by Mark Jacobsen and John Horsfield. It picks up the story at the nadir of British naval fortunes, and follows the Royal Navy's role from 1942 to the Japanese surrender in August 1945.
