Pop Quiz: Did the U.S. Army Fight in the Asia-Pacific War?
John McManus, one of the most prolific chroniclers of Army history, has just completed an acclaimed trilogy of books about the Asia-Pacific battles in World War II. Hosts LTG (Ret.) Leslie C. Smith and SMA (Ret.) Dan Dailey sit down with McManus to discuss his last book, To the End of the Earth: The US Army and the Downfall of Japan, 1945, lessons learned from those battles, and how he transitioned from an aspiring baseball announcer to a history professor and author. (Oh, and Professor McManus also oversees a little history pop quiz along the way…)
Guest: John McManus, author of To the End of the Earth: The US Army and the Downfall of Japan, 1945
