In this unsettled time, it is memorable to listen to a recording chronicling a war in which the enemy is visible and the mode of battle clear. Marrin details the United States' naval war with Japan from the attack on Pearl Harbor to the sinking of the largest Japanese aircraft carrier more than three years later. His pace moves quickly from encounter to encounter, offering both the facts of each event and vignettes of the lives of the men on the scene. Johnny Heller narrates with conviction, admiration, and disbelief--conviction that the Americans were rising to the challenge, admiration for the masterminds as well as the ordinary seamen, and compassion for the misery and horror confronting all participants. Heller's zest brings life to the words of history books. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
