Summary
"...Casts a searchlight on the last eleven weeks of the gigantic convulsion we call World War II...vividly portrays the effect of high-level decisions that made the choice initially to end the war by amphibious assault on Japan--a holocaust from which we were saved by the fateful decision to drop the atomic bomb. The lesson...is that power on the sea and liberty are inseparable..."--back cover
