This book was a little dry with much of it being along the lines of "unit A moved here, unit B moved there and clashed with enemy forces. The allies casualties were X and the Japenese suffered Y casualties". Much of the detail is at the strategic level and the only time you hear about anyone below a company commander is if they won an award like the Victoria Cross or Medal of Honour. If you're looking for insights into the soldiers lives then this book is not for you.
If you are interested in the movements of armies, navies and air forces and insights in the decesions made by their commanders then you should give this book a go; it is packed full of information and seems very well researched. Maybe like me you will be suprised at how much fighting happened in the South Pacific besides the more well known Battle for the Coral Sea, Guadalcanal and Kokoda. I'd give this book 3.5 stars if I could.

Dry and monotonus, a collection of unit histories falling far short of its hype. Names and battles grew monotonus.
