A often depressing story of the first six months of America's entry into World War Two. Beginning with the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Wake Island, and Singapore, this book provides moving accounts of the war efforts of Britain and the United States against Japan. The story concludes with the story of the 'miracle at Midway," presented as an exciting page-turner. As with many of Toland's histories, this book is based upon the author's thousands of hours of interviews with the actual participants and includes many interesting side-stories against the big picture of the major battles.

But Not In Shame by John Toland is a history of the first six months of the war in the Pacific. A terrible time with multiple defeats until the turning point battle at Midway are covered. A fair history, pulling the various threads of the battles that were lost, including Manila (and Corregidor). I give this book 4 stars ( )
