Format: Hardcover
Allies of a Kind: The United States, Britain, and the War Against Japan, 1941-1945 by Christopher Thorne.
Published by Oxford University Press, 1978. ISBN01928550857

History is and can be cruel not only to those who participated in the actual events, but also for those that tried to record and re-tell it through publications such as this. Christopher Thorne's name will not readily fall from the lips of those interested in this specific era or genre, but from this work alone, his name should be the first among the many. This book has sat upon my shelf for nigh on 20yrs, never fully read, just dipped into from time to time, past over by more 'modern' tomes from other more popular authors. Well more fool me for letting it sit there marking the passage of time with its ever yellowing pages. For inside you will not come across a more lucid, analytically fair, balanced or enjoyable read on the subject matter than this!

The research is exhaustive, even more so in a modern context given that it was written and compiled prior to the dawning of the internet and instant communications etc.

The book focus's on the specific relationship of the UK & USA in relation to the prosecution of the war against Japan, the broader strategy in SE Asia & more importantly China/India and the whole perception (often false) of each Allies reasoning and end game in theatre.

Within the 6 parts and 32 chapters Thorne skilfully guides the reader through the often shifting sands of power, duplicity and downright fear that the Allies endured both prior to WW2 itself, Pearl Harbour and beyond.
