I'd recommend it highly, but only if you have a good heart and a tolerance for intensity.
Granted, the battle of Midway was an inherently dramatic event, but other accounts of the battle don't rise to the level of Lord's writing.
This is another book I'd give a 6 if I could.
In addition to being a fine narrative history the book also gives an analysis of the overall action in great detail, complete with details of the sailing of individual ships and the reasons behind the decisions of the admirals involved.Read more ›
