Military historian John C. McManus is conducting research for a new two-volume history of the U.S. Army in the Pacific and Asian theater during World War II through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), which wants to make scholarly research more accessible to the public.

McManus, Curators’ Professor of history and political science, anticipates that the two volumes will be published in 2018 and 2020. They will be published by New American Library, a division of Penguin Books. These will be the first of McManus’ 12 books to focus entirely on the Pacific theater of World War II. He has written extensively on the American experience in the European theater during the war.

“The goal of this new series is to shed new light on the Pacific and Asian war and its long-term significance, not just for the Army, but for the United States as a whole,” McManus says.
