Nobody interested in the 1942-45 war in the Pacific should neglect Leon Cooper's book, which asks vital questions about the destructive unended rivalry between the commands of General MacArthur and Admiral Nimitz, about lessons not learned from slaughter at Tarawa and Peleliu, about the failure of knowledge from the Manhattan Project to alter island-hopping after the Marianas Islands, and about dependence on the unreliable B-29s that could have spared one or more from the trio of Marianas, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
