The Pacific Theater of WWII saw plenty of action, suffering, and death. This audiobook’s descriptions of the battles from Pearl Harbor to Okinawa will captivate all lovers of military and maritime history. The descriptions render complex air and ship movements easy to grasp without maps or visual aids. Using no characterizations, Joel Leffert employs skillful pauses to help listeners discern between the words of quoted veterans and the writer’s text. Leffert’s conversational style never sounds as though he’s simply reading, and his pleasant pace never exceeds a comfortable listening speed. With the story-like approach, many listeners may never realize how much they’re learning. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
