I read this book for the first time two years ago. Recently I read Volume XII of the HISTORY OF UNITED STATES NAVAL OPERATIONS IN WORLD WAR II and found it helpful to get an overview by rereading the brief section on the Battle for Leyte Gulf in Costello's book before tackling the four hundred pages on the same subject written by Samuel Eliot Morison in Volume XII. This suggests to me another use for THE PACIFIC WAR 1941-1945 and I intend to continue to use it in this manner in the future. As an attempt to write a one-volume account of World War II in the Pacific I also believe that Costello's book is largely successful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
