    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"

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

    The content and flow of the story is excellent.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader not only mis-pronounced the names of several of the key battles (Tarawa, Peleliu, etc.) he also mis-pronounced the word "adjutant." More than likely, people listening to this book will be familiar with the correct pronunciations and will therefore find the mispronunciations extremely distracting.

    Also, though the reader has an excellent cadence and clear voice, his Australian accent is terrible.
