Most know of his other book, Flags of Our Fathers, but I found this to be a much better read. Quite interesting and very informative of the mindset of both Americans and Japanese during the Pacific War.

Very well written. Details of many aspects of WWII that most people never learned about. Very interesting to learn more about the mindset of both sides in this horrible war.

good insight into the horror of the war with Japan, balanced and well researched as usual from this author, but parts of this book are grotesque
