Audible Books: Fleet at Floodtide

Completing the Pacific War saga in grand style. Again a very good read (or rather listen). Admittedly "one way traffic" (or rather the writing was on the wall after Guadalcanal) with much previously unknown (to me) anecdotes and information. I didn't realise how close the US Fleets (particularly with respect to Carrier Operations) were to the Japanese mainland and how costly a US lead invasion would have been. I can recommend "The Fleet at Flood Tide" (see below):

Footnote: I feel good (as in knowledge refreshed) with respect to the Pacific theatre [50+ hours of audio books over three+ months]. The only segment of Pacific history I am missing seen to need is a overview of the Pearl Harbour raid itself.
