This history of the Second World War focusses on the Pacific Theater. It is quite detail and very long.

John Toland really, really does know his subject thought and I found it interesting and learned a lot about the Japanese perspective of the war.

If you are not a real history buff though, it is quite long! Nowadays, they would have issued this book as a trilogy for easier reading.
