Personal evaluation, 5 Jan. 2012
This is a very informative book. The historic reasons for the conflict between Japan and USA is extensively described, even the early history in the 19th centuri. What I miss are personal reports of pilots, the atmosphere on the carriers, the estimation of the pilots by the other crew of the carriers. The dayly live and fellings of the crew members. This is not a negative point, because it is only my personal interest.
The conduct of the war is given in detail. A very great book.
