Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Veteran writers of popular military history and strategy, the authors have done a credible job of compiling numerous entries on all aspects of the Pacific Theater in World War II. Besides the expected identifications of battles, campaigns, and people, they include weaponry, warship classes, and aircraft types as well as units and orders of battle. Statistical data appear in frequent tables and information boxes. In a reference work of this nature, much depends upon the resources and skills of the compilers, and though some of the facts and figures here can inevitably be nit-picked, overall the information is accurate and clearly presented. In addition, the authors share their opinions as freely as their basic knowledge, presenting an insider's viewpoint and frequently taking sides in controversies. The result is lively as well as informative, and the book will be attractive to military buffs while still useful to more serious researchers. A futuristic addition to the volume's back matter is a "Cyberlist," a handy collection of appropriate web sites and hyperlink resources for use by readers with Internet access. Recommended for larger public libraries.--Raymond L. Puffer, Edwards Air Force Base, Victorville, CA
