The book effortlessly draws the reader into that fateful history of 75 years ago while establishing the context of the invasion in 20th Century history.
–Rick Martin, Book Reviewer, AmrchairGeneral.com
This book is the kind I would like to see in high school libraries and used in their modern American History courses. It’s a book that should help people who did not live through that era get a clearer understanding of what was happening back then.
