Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A bit dry, a little bit too blunt for modern tastes. The book is refreshingly not politically correct and reflects exactly the mood toward all things "war-time Japanese" of the day. Yet, it gives a fair and often (I thought) admiring account of the Japanese efforts against the American might in the Pacific war. I am impressed, as, no doubt, most S. E. Morison readers are. I offer this bit of advice; do not expect over-much entertainment unless you really want to know as much about the subject matter as possible. This book is a container of masses of information. I am not saying it would make a better reference book than a chronologic history. But, nearly, that is so. Fortunately, I am the kind of reader who revels in this kind of book. I will treasure my copy, placing it right on my favorite books shelf.

Well written. Engrossing. Incredibly detailed history down to who sunk what uboat. He faults the Navy for our total lack of preparedness for the submarine war on our shipping. He faults Navy & Army for personal power struggles that prevented coordination of our war effort. A sobering history.

I loved it approx. 45-50 years ago when I read all the books in the History of Naval Ops series. For now I'm slowly collecting all of them and will certainly read them again (hopefully before I die).
