Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
My favorite book on the Battle of Midway - told from the Japanese point of view.
There is now talk of renaming Chicago's Midway Airport to Obama.
It's a 'must read'The authors' site ishttp://www.combinedfleet.com/
This may be the best book I have ever read. The research is obviously exhaustive, and was compiled using a lot of information gleaned from the Japanese tactics and strategy from that time. Many previously held assumptions about the battle are washed away by the truths revealed by actual accounts from survivors and the Japanese records. I have been recommending this book to everyone I know ever since reading it about a year ago.
Heavy going for someone with a short attention span such as myself. The detail is outstanding.
