Review: Eagle Against the Sun: The American War With Japan (The Macmillan Wars of the United States)

User Review  - Josh Mitchell - Goodreads

A nice overview of the Pacific War. Thorough and well written, although lacking in supporting maps that would make the narrative easier to visualize. A worthwhile read. Read full review
