MEDIA REVIEWS
A brutal account . . . for those who want more of the nightmare of those foxholes after ten hours of The Pacific, this book is for you * * The Times * *
Extremely good . . . he lets his soldiers tell the story. Through those young men we are given an uncompromising picture of the war, which, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, most Americans believed to be their most important engagement. The TV series might offer us a glimpse of that distant conflict in the Pacific. Hugh Ambrose's book gives us the greatest generation in the round * * Scotsman * *
A compelling book which affords Pacific veterans the testament they deserve -- Julian Fleming * * Sunday Business Post * *
