Excellent overview, including the events preceeding the war.

Very thorough, may have to read it again being only a 15 year old boy. Very very dense, but in a good way, very detailed. i love it.

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.
