Reviews of Wake Island, the Heroic Gallant Fight

Overall customer rating: 2.000

A virtual twin of Devereux's earlier book.

by ryefish on Apr 3, 2007

Schultz's recounting of the events at Wake reflect considerable previously published material from Devereux's 1947 and other first-hand accounts. On topic and organized well from the standpoint of chronology the book's strengths are its valuable appendicies and pictures along with most notably Schultz's attempt to bring credit to the late RADM Cunningham, whose command of the garrison at Wake Island has been overshadowed by the fickle nature of American combat history and Hollywood. Not to be neglected by historians, but for the history buff I would read either this book or Devereux's, to read both would be greatly redundant.
