A well written historical novel with Jeff Shaara's addition of dialogue between characters.
The book tells the story from the point of view of several historical characters as the battle for Okinawa is waged and the atomic bombs are dropped on Japan.
He follows a Marine private and the Japanese commander as well as the U.S. Pacific commanders, Gen.
Another great book. It gives you insights into the war that are missing with other works.Published 3 days ago by William Nevin

The writer wrote well and the topic is very interesting. I think the Soviets agreed to declare war on Japan three months after the Potsdam Conference. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Amazon Customer
