Great Battles for Boys: WWII Pacific, by Joe Giorello is a broad look at the history of the Second World War in the Pacific broken down into separate chapters covering individual battles. There are two things I really like about this book; first, it is historically accurate. That is so important when dealing with such a complex subject. The information is given in a well thought out manner that makes it easy for anyone to enjoy and understand. The author paints a clear picture of what is going on in each battle.

The second thing, which I love, is that the stories, although complete in themselves, do leave you wanting, and Joe Giorello has made that easy by referencing other books, films and best of all, website links, to more in-depth information. That will certainly appeal to younger readers for whom the ‘net is everything.

I really enjoyed reading this book, and even though I’ve read hundreds of books covering this topic, I learned even more from Joe’s well-researched work. I can easily recommend it to anyway, and don’t let the ‘Boys’ in the title scare you away. It is great for adults too. ( )
