Are there any good books that show the pacific battlefields in then and now pictures. I know they have a few on the European theatre. Also any good books that have color pictures of whats left on the islands?

I recall that a fellow called Mangles, did a video of his yaughting trips (complete with very nice looking young lady) around South East Asia.

One Island they visited was loaded with mainly military vehicles.

Got a 6x6 going and were driving it around.

Maybe someone in Australia may remember it and be able to give you more clues on how to get a copy.
