Texas A & M University Press College Station. 29 In 1821, the czar banned all foreign ships from Alaskan waters and extended Russia’s territorial claims along the Pacific coast to Vancouver Island. The Alaska-Siberia Connection. 3 Red Air Force pilots with the Soviet Military Mission at Fairbanks began the relay of the aircraft from Alaska across Siberia. In 1942-43, the relationship between Americans and Soviets in Alaska presented challenges to build and maintain confidence of one for the other. Unforeseen problems were frequent.
In the famous sculpture of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's triumphant return to the Philippines in 1944, one man follows the general onto the beach wearing neither helmet nor hat. That man is a radio reporter, one of only a handful who covered the war in the Pacific for the Americans back home. That man is Bill Dunn. This is his story of that war.CBS sent reporter Dunn to the Orient nearly a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor to survey broadcast facilities for the coverage of the anticipated hostilities. In Rangoon he learned that his nation was at war. After moving to Batavia to cover the fall of the Netherlands East Indies, he escaped to Australia, where he joined MacArthur's staff for the duration. From that vantage point he covered air, land, and sea battles, campaign planning, ground combat, and the liberation of internment and POW camps. At Japan's surrender, he was dean of correspondents in the Southwest Pacific, a distinction that earned him an early entry into defeated Tokyo and a bird's-eye view of the signing of the surrender document. Based on Dunn's memories and the transcripts of his broadcasts from the field, Pacific Microphone presents the first written account of the vagaries and headaches of providing radio coverage of a war that encompassed half the globe, including vast areas where modern electronics were limited. It also offers some unique viewpoints of certain aspects of the Pacific war, the insights of a professional observer who came to know the men and women who fought that war on land, air, and sea, and, certainly, the commanding minds that provided the direction and leadership that resulted in ultimate victory.
“Bill Dunn has some unexpected and fascinating memories of MacArthur that add to our collective historical knowledge. This is . . . a first-rate description of how the news was carried from the warfront to the civilian rear, and an altogether inspiring memoir of what it was like out there in the bloody, traumatic Pacific war.”—from the foreword by Mike Wallace, CBS News/60 Minutes“So far as I know there has never been such a chronicling by a newsman of equal qualifications..”—Douglas Edwards, CBS News
“An engagingly anecdotal war memoir . . . that affords insights as well as intelligence.”—Kirkus Reviews
