    Although most people associate the term D-day with the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944, it is military code for the beginning of any offensive operation. In the Pacific theater during World War II there were more than one hundred D-days. The largest - and last - was the invasion of Okinawa on April 1, 1945, which brought together the biggest invasion fleet ever assembled, far larger than that engaged in the Normandy invasion.D-Days in the Pacific tells the epic story of the campaign waged by American forces to win back the Pacific islands from Japan.

    Erik W. Flint says: "Great Content. Distracting Pronunciation"
    "Well written book handicapped by poor narration"

    Story
    What did you like best about D-Days in the Pacific? What did you like least?

    Provided a reasonable mix of smaller details and overarching strategic situation. It did feel like it took awhile to get to the "D-Days". The author provided a substantial amount of material devoted to setting the stage for Pearl Harbor and the beginning of the United States' entry into World War Two.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorites. Interesting to hear a broad spectrum of opinions and perspectives, from a multitude of services and branches.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gary Dikeos’s performances?

    No.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Most likely.
