The first definitive account of one of the most critical naval battles of World War II in the Pacific! Spring 1942: Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, America was reeling under the successive Japanese victories in Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines and more. Desperate to stop what was seen as an inexorable Japanese advance toward Australia, the weak U.S. Navy intercepted the larger Japanese fleet in the Coral Sea. The Battle of the Coral Sea ushered a new era in sea warfare. For the first time ever opposing fleets used carrier-launched aircraft to fight each other. It was a fight that would determine the future of the war.
