The Fall of Japan: The Final Weeks of World War II in the Pacific

Fall of Japan

I received a prepublication copy of this book (September 29, 2015) through NetGalley with the understanding that I would publish are review on my blog, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google + pages along with NetGalley, Amazon and Goodreads.

I requested this book because I am an avid reader about American history including World War II. This is the first book by William Craig that I have read. This is a reprint of the original that was published a number of years ago.

I found this book to an interesting read. While it addressed historical events the author presented it in a style that was easy to read and engaging. It is well researched and I learned several details about the end of World War II in the Pacific that has not surfaced in other books that I have read on the subject.

Craig does a very good job of covering the end from both sides, the American and the Japanese, without the hyperbole and unnecessary drama that I have seen in other books.

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in American History and in particular the events surrounding the end of World War II in the Pacific.
