really liked it
bookshelves: history-biography
Recommended for: serious historians
Read in January, 1975

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.
