I started reading this book last Friday, Sept 1st 2011. I decided to read this as my way of remembering my dad who died on the same day 14 years ago. I did not know if he read any war books but I saw how attentive he was whenever a war movie was on the telly. When he migrated to the US, my brother regularly rented war movies just to make my dad happy.

Great collection of deep views into many different facets of this manifold topic. I was particulary impressed with the stories of the attempted coup in Japan, the Flying Fortress tailgunner diary, and the behind-the-scenes stories of Bataan and the Bridge at Remagen.

Among the most interesting are a re-printing of a diary of a Japanese kamikaze pilot who survived his attack and was captured. The profile of General Edwin P. King, who surrendered the lar...more

He describes various missions over Germany and occupied France. His harrowing descriptions of being chased by german fighter planes and getting shot at are amazing.The...more

Collection of brief articles/accounts on various, lesser-known episodes from the Second World War. Some are absolute gems, such as the account of the attempted palace coup in Japan at the very end of the war?

Like the subtitle says, PERSPECTIVES. It has been a while, but I REMEMBER reading it.
