WAKE: The Story of a Battle

By the author of numerous recreations of a variety of battles, this one is quite similar to The Battle of Midway and is also largely based on material gleaned from private journals. The narrative concentrates almost entirely on the period from the opening of the Japanese attack on December 8, 1941, until the final surrender by the Marines on December 23. This is an exciting and personalized account of the struggle, told in detail and set against the wider perspective of the Pacific War.
