Java Sea 1942: Japan's Conquest of the Netherlands East Indies - Jim Laurier, Mark Stille

"JAVA SEA 1942" offers a concise, comprehensive account of the combat actions at sea in and around the Netherlands East Indies from late February to early March 1942 that resulted in a decisive Japanese victory against a combined ABDA (American, British, Dutch, and Australian) naval force, and secured Japan’s control of the Netherlands East Indies with its considerable oil reserves. The book also contains a wealth of photos, battle diagrams, and illustrations that add to the reader's understanding of what was the first major surface engagement of the Pacific War.
