Morison brings us deep inside the campaign to win the Bismark islands. Although Rabaul is arguably the main focus of the book, the book mostly spends time on the surrounding islands and the strategy used to neutralize a 100,000+ garrison base without actually landing troops. Since this campaign blends water- and land-based forces, more time is spent on the land-based side of the war than others in this series.

One of a 15-volume series that I'm working through very slowly. They're all good, much too detailed in some ways, not detailed enough in others. But all well written and informative.
