This book provides a fresh take on World War II in the Pacific that goes beyond the simple recounting of battles won and lost to synthesize the strategies, politics, and key players that shaped the conduct of the war. The author takes a regional approach to this multifaceted, often nonlinear war conducted on land, sea (and significantly by America undersea), and in the air across the immense reaches of the Pacific to effectively develop the major themes and causes of the battles.

This book is OK but not great, it will be a disappointment to hard core WWII Pacific War buffs but if it is read by someone who doesn't know that much about the war with Japan than they will only learn the very basics with this book, don't expect to get into real detail about each battle or campaign, each chapter is only about six or seven pages long covering each phase of the war.
This book does a good job of showing what strategies the US used to defeat Japan and also gave insight into who executed these strategies. Where we strayed from our pre-war strategy and where we executed it. Overall it is a good overview of the Pacific War.
