5.0 out of 5 stars A materfully written and truly inspirational book!, August 15, 2000
This review is from: God's Samurai: Lead Pilot at Pearl Harbor (Brassey's Commemorative Series, Wwii) (Hardcover)
A friend of mine introduced me to this book in April of this year. He told me it was unlike any book about the Pacific war that he had ever read. Although skeptical at first, I sill went ahead and purchased the book. I left it on my book-shelve for several months and forgot all about it. As I began packing up in July to move I noticed this book again, so I picked it up and began reading it. I found the style of writing extremely fluid, and the chapters were concise. This well balanced account of Mitsuo Fuchida life traces it from his days as an Imperial naval aviator to Christian evangelist. 'God's Samurai' is a truly inspirational book filled with numerous accounts of honor, bravery, loyalty, and sacrifice - all the codes of a Samurai warrior. I have enjoyed this book tremendously, and I have just begun reading, 'Midway: The Battle That Doomed Japan: The Japanese Navy's Story' by Mitsuo Fuchida, Roger Pineau (Editor),Masatake Okumiya(Contributor). Both 'God's Samurai' and 'Midway' are 'must-have' books for anyone who is truly interested in the Pacific war and naval battles!

Add "The Broken Sword" to your list. It gives an enormously more detailed account of the Battle of Midway from the Japanese perspective, being based on Japanese military documents, and overturns a number of beliefs that have become standard about that battle.

I think the book on Midway you are referring to is "Shattered Sword," written by Parshall and Tully, not "The Broken Sword" written by Poul Anderson, which is a fantasy novel.
