    Should be required reading for high school history classes

    David Sears has taken the time and effort to thoroughly<BR/>research this book. Not only through other books and Naval<BR/>records, but by contacting the men and who lived through the<BR/>actual events and their families. This first hand reporting<BR/>puts you on the decks of these great ships, side by side with<BR/>the men who fought so bravely during some of the most horrific<BR/>fighting of World War II. <BR/>This book should be required reading for all our young people.<BR/>I think it may open their eyes to the kinds of sacrifices our<BR/>military made then, and continue to make, to preserve the freedom<BR/>we all too often take for granted.

    Drives home the devastation wrought on the U.S. naval forces

    I found this titled book to be researched to a great extent, particularly with personal interviews with surviving veterans of the Pacific war against Japan. The casualties inflicted on the U.S. Navy,specifically by the kamikazes , is told with precise attention to detail. It makes the reader fully appreciate the sacrifices made by those seaman, for the most part young boys not even old enough to vote during that time period.

    A compelling read

    I just finished reading David Sears latest book At War With The Wind in which he so aptly chronicles the WWII Naval battle of the South Pacific. Mr. Sears has done a masterful job of weaving together a vast amount of detail with hundreds of personal, eye-witness accounts of how those heroic sailors and marines fought one of the most bloody naval battles of modern warfare. David¿s writing style is very interesting and easy to read, yet this is a compelling account of the war. He has helped me to come to a much greater appreciation of what our fighting men and women have given for the freedom we enjoy today. It is a must read for anyone interested gaining insight into the history of our country.

    A Moving Account of Courage Under Fire and Heroism

    At War with the Wind is an excellent look at the men of the U.S. Navy in the Pacific theatre and their battles with the Japanese, especially Kamikaze attacks. While historical, it tells of these battles from the men who were there. Many books have been written about World War II, but not many from the viewpoint of the flightdeck or the radio room from those who manned those posts and who watched friends' acts of true bravery and sacrifice. A nice photo section accompanies the book with personal photos of some of the sailors mentioned in the book.<BR/><BR/>The author truly cares about these men and portrays their heroism (though the men don't think of it that way) as humble as well as noble. A great read for those who want to understand history from those who made it.

    Top Notch Read

    One of the best books on the subject. The author talked to many sailors who lived through this horror. Should be required reading for any WWII buff.
