Not related to the war in the Pacific, but one I recently read and found exceptionally interesting - The Sword of St. Michael, The 82nd Airborne Division in World War II.

Also not related to WITP- Self published author Anthony Ryan- Ravens Shadow book 1 Blood Song. Very good fantasy, debut novel but the quality of the characters and writing is up there with Brandon Sanderson.

Clay Blair Jr., Silent Victory - about the U.S. submarine campaign...



I may get this book for Christmas. I got 300 pages in before returning it to the library and found it deep, entertaining and informative.

+1 Excellent. On the other hand, I do not like his two-volume Hitler's U-boat War.

To add color to Blair's operational history, try reading in order:
Pigboat 39 - Guigloitta [pre-war and early war in an S-boat with color about life in the USN during the era]
Wahoo - O'Kane [mid-war in a fleet boat]
Clear the Bridge! - O'Kane [mid to late war in a fleet boat]
Then maybe:
Iron Coffins - Werner [a German perspective on the War in the Atlantic including some color on life in the Reich]
Unbroken - Mars [subs in the Med, a British perspective]

H. P. Willmott's three volume history
Empires in the Balance: Japanese and Allied Pacific Strategies to April 1942
Barrier and the Javelin: Japanese and Allied Strategies, February to June 1942
The War with Japan: The Period of Balance, May 1942-October 1943




Dammit, I am missing last of Willmott's. He is brilliant strategic analyst and historian.

Bought this the other day and am up to Chapter 4. A very good book so far. Very interesting to read the real story of Churchill and Gallipoli at last! Incredible how the story gets distorted over the years until ultimately a particular version of the truth becomes "actual fact" - and in reality proves to be someway short of being so....
