Obviously written from an American perspective but refreshingly objective in the most part. I enjoyed this account. While it is factual it does not detract from the individual heroisms displayed throughout the battle. Nor does it paint a negative picture of the Japanese but rather highlights their honour code and willingness to fight to the last man.

This was easy to read and informative. It was thought provoking and inspiring. A must read for those interested in the Pacific theatre in WWII. ( )
