By far the most balanced account of the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot. It makes clear why the Japanese who certainly, in at least shear numbers and combat assets, failed to put up an effective defense. The personal perspectives and stories really flesh out the narrative. A must read for Pacific Theater enthusiasts. BT
