This is an excellent view of the Pacific campaign in World War II seen through the eyes of a few of its participants, American and Japanese. Most interesting is the personal insights and the decision making on the part of Japanese command and staff officers from the start of the war through its inevitable conclusion. The narration is perfect, providing the fabric of the printed page without distraction.

I have listened to a lot of books about the Navy and Marine WWII battles in the south and central pacific. Most were accounts from people who were there some were fiction. Thomas did a very fine job of putting a real face on the commanders of the naval forces. At times I thought he was a little hard on the Americans and not hard enought on the Japanes. Halsey was painted out to be to driven as an admiral. From where I stand (which is in the cheap seats) thank god for men like Halsey yes he made some mistakes but over all he and the other admirals did a wonderful job. A fine work by Thomas I enjoyed it.
