    One thought on “A Battle History of the Imperial Japanese Navy (1941-1945)”

    1. very good drawn a lot from Japanese sources Gives far details about the fighting around Guadacanal at night than any other book I ve read.

    2. This book is a very good summary of the Pacific Theater of WWII Published in 1978, it contains excellent source material from IJN archives, which was blended well with known source material from the Allied side As an overview, it is very good Its descriptions of each battle, from the well known to the unknown, are not detailed That said, the descriptions of the wheres and whys of each battle, as well as the observations on the effects of each battle on the course of the war are very good.

    3. Was ground breaking in its day, but other treatments of most of the campaigns covered leave this book seeming shallow Perhaps this was inevitable, given the scope of actions covered from the beginning of the Pacific War to the end So the book s an overview rather than the sort of carefully drawn history one finds in books that cover single battles or campaigns Orders of battle are well done and an excellent resource Surface engagement descriptions are easy to follow Carrier battle actions don t [...]

    4. First published in 1973, this is the first Western history of the Pacific War to use Japanese archival material It covers every engagement in which the Imperial Japanese Navy participated, from pivotal battles like Midway to small skirmishes in the Solomons campaigns I found the style engaging and the detail well drawn An excellent resource for any student of the Second World War.

    5. This is a good book that focuses on the Japanese perspective of the war, specifically the naval segment Over half the book is on the first year or so and the rest of the war feels rushed, but then again, by late 1943 the Japanese Navy was already a shell of itself and unable to fight as it had earlier in the war.

    6. A work of impressive scholarship but the book is dry and the war after Leyte Gulf is basically skipped over, leading to some holes in the narrative A few surface battles from that period are not even covered Still, this is the definitive book on this subject.

    7. Really a very well done addition to a crowded field What sets it apart is Dull s reliance on Japanese sources and his military knowledge You really come away with a much better understanding of how the operational and tactical options looked from the Japanese commander s perspective

    8. A thorough look at every campaign and engagement of the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Second World War, from Pearl Harbor to the final surrender.
