    Long Overdue!

    This coffee table book is easy to read and follow. Many, today, think of World War II as a "European" War with the Pacific taking on the feeling of being an anecdote.
    Having had 3 close relatives fight, all combat infantry who saw action in the Pacific on the front lines in the heat and humidity and malaria-filled tropical jungles, surviving banzai and kamikaze attacks and live to come back home, says that is a false opinion. It is only now that writers and historians are realizing that the Pacific War was a much deadlier and harder fought war to win than in Europe.
    The enemy was fanatical, and, for all intents and pursposes, this war was really a war fought 90% by the United States on sea, land, and air by "ourselves". FDR placed a "secondary" importance on the Pacific, yet America perserved and won it with our "can do" attitude. And for us today, this war was America's first encounter with "suicidal terrorists" who didn't care about anyone, even themselves.
    Truly this book gives those eyewitness accounts by the men and women who fought it that we, as a nation, need to record and hear so America does not forget what happened in the world's biggest and deepest ocean with all those small islands.
    This book is a primer everyone should read to get a better understanding of how America won this war practically ... single-handed. And won it against a determined and suicidal enemy. who many times never acted as a rational human being, and had no regard for his own life and the lives of his enemies or even his own countrymen ... meaning women and children. Simply done, superb,well done!
