This e-book is an interesting and entertaining read for the price.

What stands out about Mr.Saccaro's e-book is that, instead of focusing on the months/weeks before Pearl Harbor like most works covering the origins of WWII in the Pacific, Saccaro covers in detail the years prior to 1941 and assesses even the minute events during those years that made war a certainty.

However, the book isn't without its problems. It likely wasn't written for the kindle format since there are some minor formatting problems. The paragraphs are a little long and sometimes Japanese individuals who have special characters in their names such as "Koki Hirota" are glitched out a bit. Also, all of the endnotes don't line up properly.

Overall, this is an informative and refreshing read for the money. Saccaro makes novel use of documents trodden over many times and brings a fresh perspective on the topic, which is hard to do these days since it's practically been beaten to death.

4/5 stars. Fun to read, offers value for money, but the formatting issues can be bothersome.

Japan wanted to expand, and needed resources to expand. Being dominated by the military and repeatedly disappointed in diplomatic dealings with nearly everyone since the Sino-Japanese war, that was going to come only by conquest. Hull and the US wanted Japan to stop expanding militarily.

Well, here (against all logic) it was the Cordell Hull that was to blame for Japanese intransigence--he didn't bend over far enough. While accurate factually, the spin put on the facts in this essay simply deny the picture painted by the information.
