Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed WWII historian and military intelligence expert John Prados offers a provocative reassessment of the Allies’ battle for the Solomon Islands - a turbulent, dramatic campaign that, he argues, was the true turning point of the Pacific conflict.

Way too much detail

This is one of my favorite subjects to read about so i was very interested in this book. I feel like Prados goes into so much detail he detracts from the story. Tons of Facts and figures that aren't really needed to progress the narrative. The choice of narrator isn't the best either, it was hard to listen for long period of time and stay interested. But I did learn a lot and after all that's why I read/listen to books.
