"Author Robert Lyman covers all of the details of the battle very well, and it's obvious he has gone to great lengths to research the battle that covers all aspects of the battle. Anyone interested in World War Two battles in the Pacific Theater, or the Allied and Axis forces fighting there will find this book very informative and interesting." --Randy Harvey, AeroScale
