D-Days in the Pacific, latest book by Donald L. Miller, MacCracken Professor of History, is the companion volume to a three-part History Channel program of the same name that debuts 7-10 p.m. Sunday, July 24, and will be repeated Aug. 14.

Published in April by Simon & Schuster/Lou Reda, the book is a sweeping chronicle of the four-year battle for Pacific dominance in World War II. A greatly revised and expanded version of the Pacific chapters of Miller’s 2002 book The Story of World War II, D-Days coincides with the 60th anniversary of the final stages of the war with Japan, which culminated in that country’s surrender on Aug. 15, 1945.

The History Channel series includes three hour-long programs, “Death at the Tideline,” “Closing the Jaws,” and “The Final Graveyard,” scheduled to air consecutively.

The Story of World War II is a main source for the PBS American Experience program “Victory in the Pacific,” which debuted in May. American Experience is the longest-running, most-watched history series on television.
