I enjoyed the maps and graphics, however the character portrayal of Yamamoto strongly contrasts with what I have read about him in a number of other books, and portrays him in more negative a light than I am used to.

This military biography is best read alongside Agawa's more personal account of the man. Together you get a good look at Yamamoto as man and commander. It is a fascinating portrait that defies easy stereotypes. I think Stille is perhaps too hard on him, but he is more fair than Parshall and Tully.

A very interesting look into Yamamoto Isoroku, fully comparable to similar Osprey titles in my opinion. I found it most interesting that Mr Stille decided to contest the "prevailing" view of the admiral, but he did in the end convert me by abundant proof and evidence...
