Narrator Grover Gardner gives an applaudable narration of this detailed history of the Pacific Theater in WWII. Toll examines the beginnings of the war with the rise of Japan as a Pacific power in the aftermath of the nation's 1905 war with Russia and continues through the U.S. victory at Midway. Gardner presents the many historical details in this work with an easygoing pace and precise enunciation that quickly draw in the listener and never let go. Rather than affecting an accent for quotations, he adjusts his inflection slightly, which works well. Novices and history buffs will find this performance a treat and want to hear the continuation of the story. M.T.F. 2013 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
