This is a fresh overview of the war against Japan with emphasis on the American decision makers and the choices they made. It all but ignores the War in Europe except for its influence on the resources available for the Pacific War. The evolving strategy is seen from the different perspectives of Roosevelt, Leahy, King, Nimitz, and MacArthur. The various campaigns and their major players are described with emphasis on how they fit into, or didn't fit into, the broader scheme. It vividly describes the risks that were taken early in the war to halt the Japanese expansion South and East, notably in the Coral Sea, at Midway, and at Guadalcanal. This is not a book for those seeking all the details of individual battles.
