Very well written book. It shows again how economic capacity of countries, cultural differences in attitude towards the war (e.g. Japan's serious mistake in assuming that heave US losses will lead to faster peace negotiations) and even personal features of commanding officers influence the result of battles. Clear, well written set of chapters are pleasure to read - the book presents consistent and well thought through analysis of the conflict. Definitely good reading.

This book goes into an overview of several centuries to provide an understanding of their culture and activities involving the Pacific countries. While I have gained a much better perspective the book is not a quick read. Thus far I have enjoyed the book. Cmankat
