OPERATION KE THE CACTUS AIR FORCE AND THE JAPANESE WITHDRAWL FROM GUADALCANAL

Book Type: C

by Roger and Dennis Letourneau

This revisionist history questions some key traditional assumptions underlying Operation KE–the rescue of some 10,600 Japanese troops from Guadalcanal. The authors challenge the accepted American view that the Japanese succeeded largely because U.S. Pacific Theater commanders let them. Tracing the course of the air and sea clashes surrounding Operation KE, the writers conclude that Japanese strategic planning took advantage of the strengths possessed by the Imperial armed forces while exploiting the limitations of their adversaries. On the other hand, American misreading of Japanese intentions, the consequent pursuit of a cautious offensive strategy, plus a misallocationof resources, all undermined U.S. initiatives to stymy Operation KE. 416 pages.
