Told from the Japanese perspective, using largely Japanese sources, this volume represents the first substantive contribution to the West's understanding of Midway in more than a generation.Told from the Japanese perspective, using largely Japanese sources, this volume represents the first substantive contribution to the West's understanding of Midway in more than a generation.Read Less
Never read about midway from the Japanese perspective and this book is great. It dispels many myths about midway. Looks like a text book but reads easily. Not a novel but easy to read.

Well Researched & Documented
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.

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.

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.
