No wonder you can buy this book for a penny!,
This review is from: The Pacific (The Official HBO/Sky TV Tie-In) (Paperback)
Hugh Ambrose may be an able historian but, in my opinion, he is certainly not a good writer. There has been a total lack of supervision of the author by the publisher and they should be ashamed at letting this book go to print as it is. What a great pity indeed.
The previous poster has said it all about the writers style of writing - which gets most irritating after only a few pages. The repeating staccato sentences;the lack of proper punctuation and grammar; out of sync chronology; illogical sentence construction - honestly I would expect much better from students at elementary school. I cannot understand why the book was not subject to rigorous editing before publication.

Thanks for the warning. If there's one thing I can't stand in a book it's undisciplined writing.
