 A fully illustrated history of how with Operation Hailstone the US Navy destroyed Truk, the greatest Japanese naval and air base in the Pacific, and how B-29 units and the carriers of British Pacific Fleet kept the base suppressed until VJ-Day.

This book examines the rise and fall of Truk as a Japanese bastion, and explains how in two huge raids, American carrier-based aircraft reduced it to irrelevance. It also tells the little-known story of how in follow-up campaigns the USAAF used the ravaged base as a live-fire training ground for its new B-29s -- whose bombing raids also ensured Truk could not be reactivated by the Japanese. The pressure was kept up right through 1945, with Truk being used as a target for the 509th Composite Squadron to practice dropping its atomic bombs, and by the British Pacific Fleet to hone its pilots' combat skill prior to the invasion of Japan, in the Royal Navy's only action in the central Pacific.
