Nowhere was the brutality of war more intense than in the Pacific. As American sailors, soldiers, and aviators fought savage battles that have become legendary (Midway, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, Okinawa) mainland Japan drew ever nearer. The American and Japanese veterans of those campaigns shared their stories with North, who presents them here in the soldiers' own words.
More than a fascinating history of combat, War Stories II stands as a testament to the unmatched valor and bravery of an extraordinary generation.

I have read/listen to many books about WWII and I rank this with the Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw. The campaign in the Pacific some times is over looked. This is another tremendous story of the heroism and sacrifice that all combat soldiers go through. It again left me with a feeling of gratitude for what that generation did for their children and granchildren. I highly recommend this listen if you have any interest in the personel views of those who where there.
