This is one of the most detailed historical accounts of World War II I have ever heard. The material is meticulously researched and presented to the reader in a way that keeps you riveted to your iPod or MP3 player.
The author presents the material in a completely unbiased way which lets the reader come to their own conclusions about the war effort in Asia and the dubious decisions made by Naval and political leaders. Unfortunately when inept leaders make bad decisions, it is usually the poor grunts and swabbies that pay the ultimate price.
Hornfischers book also makes a very solid case for why American soldiers, sailors and Marines should never be under the command of foreign military leaders.
If I could give this book 10 stars I would do so.
