Another WWII Pacific Book ... The Rising Sun by John Toland

Another book completed by the Audible audio-book odyssey is "The Rising Sun" by John Toland. An epic standing over 40 hours long but covering the pre-hostility decline in Sino-US relationships, the tumultuous war years and the power struggles within the Japanese Military in the final months of the war versus the civilians and Hirohito to finally "stop the war" (see below):

Fascinating in detail and illuminating in describing the scope of the war. Again bring out the 1/3000 US/Japanese naval ships (plus some Dutch, Australian and Royal Navy).
