But the book does not rise much above the compliment "decent little book." The author writes in the sparing, bare-bones style of a journalist without imparting any sense of drama to the story. The facts are there, along with some interpretations, but no forceful sense of conviction. One could say that this is more of a series of articles rather than a book, per se. The book contains several appendices that could have been used to more effect in the chapters rather than tucked in at the end.
Nevertheless, author Hays does give the reader a better understanding of the war in the Northern Pacific, especially the effects on the troops who were stationed there.
