Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Pacific Blitzkrieg is not only a major contribution to our understanding of the Pacific War but is also a delight to read. Lacey demolishes the belief, widely held among students of the Pacific War, that a deep gulf lay between the Marine Corps and the Army.”—Williamson Murray, coauthor of A War to Be Won: Fighting the Second World War

“This is a significantly fresh approach in that it goes beyond the Army-Marine controversies best exemplified by ‘Smith versus Smith.’”—Dennis E. Showalter, author of Hitler’s Panzers and Patton and Rommel
