Well Researched & Documented

by malmar on Feb 7, 2013

I have read several books on the Battle of Midway. Shattered Sword is by far the best book on the subject. The book corrects several mistakes made by other authors. I recommend the book to anyone who has an interest in history.

Shattered Sword

Military History at its best. The author went back to source documents to completely rewrite the story of Midway. Highly recommended!

I don't know whether you are asking me to review the quality of the book or the content. I don't have any friends that read WW2 material. The book was really a good buy and the order was handled very promptly.

Excellent

A friend recommended this to me. I recommend this to you. WWII in Europe has been covered, and finally the Pacific is getting its due. And there are many more like this one...if you care to research.

Everything you wanted to know about the Battle of Midway. it's the untold story Largely based in Japanese information we find a force that was very brittle with little or no back-up plan. They assumed victory therefore there was no plan for defeat. While invative on one had , very ridgid on the other. Info on air groups and things like damage control Things never mentioned before. I wish I'd attended Parshall's lecture. A great book that will be a classic.
