Here is the full story of the largest land-sea-air battle ever waged by the United States. Respected historian Bill Sloan tells the full story of the Battle of Okinawa as it has never been told before, through the eyes of the men in battle.
After reading this, you'll understand why we dropped the bomb on Japan. Good military history.
The best war book ever

I've read a lot of war histories, but I really think this is the best war book ever. It provides a lot of historical information about the battle (which is clearly is under emphasized by history) More importantly, it provides different stories within the story of the men who fought the battle on both sides and the civilians who endured the fighting. I especially appreciated the stories of sheer heroism by American soldiers.
