  • Ok, first a complaint: how ANYONE could give this book less than 3 stars needs some additional education. It's one thing if this type of book is not your fav. That's understandable. But comments like, "it was written at a 6th-grade level," and "too many backstories it got confusing," well, I'll let it go at that with no further commentary. The book was extensively researched. It is a historical documentary that the author has skillfully written to resemble a novel. You find yourself interested in the characters. Yes, there is a lot of military nomenclature. Yes, it can be difficult to keep 1/1 and 1/5 and 3/5 divisions straight. If it's tough for you, think about how tough it was for 18 and 19-year-old boys under heavy enemy fire and shelling to keep straight. Every time the author switches individual stories, he has a CLEAR SEPARATION between them. He very deftly tells individual stories of men in combat and their fears, their defeats, and their victories. World War II is fast becoming a forgotten war. Every day, nearly 400 WWII vets die. Their stories would die, too, if not for skilled writers such as Mr. Ambrose. My late father-in-law was one of the men who served valiently in the Pacific. I think every American should educate themselves on their valor and sacrifice. All gave some, some gave all. Thank you, Mr. Ambrose.

  • I chose to read "The Pacific" because my father, who served in the Navy aboard ship, was among those who served in the Pacific theatre of operations during WW II. Hugh Ambrose captured the lives and experiences of a handful of men who fought with courage and commitment during some of the most brutal battles of the Pacific.

    One of the less notables elements of the war that Ambrose cites are the kamikaze attacks by Japanese pilots on US ships. My father told me about such attacks, adding that ships in which he was aboard were very nearly struck by the Japanese planes.

    I was especially moved by the actions of Marine Gunnery Sergeant John Basilone, who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his role in the Battle of Guadalcanal. Ambrose thoughtfully describes Sgt. Gasoline and captured the essence of why he was a hero during the war.

    This narrative of the bravery and remarkable service of our armed services in the Pacific is well worth the effort to read.

  • I expected this to be the novelization of the miniseries, which I love. There were quite a few differences. It was much more of a historical account, than a novelization. I have already read Leckie's book, but after reading this I want to read Sledge's book too. A couple of new characters/historical figures were introduced in this book. I found it both educational and fun to read.

  • I read many of the reviews before purchasing this book and found most want to relate it to the movie. As the author plainly states, this book is the work of research not used by the movie. This book should in no way be connected to the movie and stand on it's own merit. Also, I do believe the author also stated he was not a writer and this is his first book which he wrote in honor of his deceased Father.
    The book is very informative and I did not realize until reading this that I have never read much about Iwo Jima or Okanowa battles. Anyone who is interested in history or WWII should read this book as it should be a must read. Most WWII books you read only go the late 1943 and jump over the Pacific Theater until mid 1945, glossing over the horrors. After reading this, I am now is search of more books. Highly enjoyed reading and savoring the information provided. I agree at times, the reading seemed to jump around (as many other do) and at times you may have to review something that was previously wrote to keep the story line in mind. Even with any flaws the reader may find, this book should go on your reading list.
    One of the best informative books I have read in a long time. Full of new perspective and many new views not previously written.
    To Hugh Ambrose, I say thank you.

  • This book fills in a lot of blanks concerning the Mini Series. Although the series was very accurate, this book goes into much more detail. Like any movie, parts are changed and some stories edited, Ambrose tells more of the stories that were not shared. This book earns 5 stars and I would give it 6 if I could.

  • Exquisitely written and researched. Real war memoirs of the men who fought some of the most costly battles in history. The struggles to cope with the horrors perpetrated by an enemy who's cruelty and humanity aroused a dedication to totally eliminate the source.

  • I think any one who is interested in WW II would appreciate this book. In addition to the brutal combat itself, it delves into the unending difficulties with the heat and mud and insects these courageous kids went through for months on end. To me they were ALL heroes--I don't know how the fatigue factor alone didn't keep them from functioning as a fighting force.

    The book also eliminates (IMHO) any doubt about whether the use of the atomic bomb by Truman was justified--it saved hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides.

  • I was very excited to receive this book. My Dad and Uncle's fought in the pacific, the fighting was so horrific.
    This book gives us a look into what our families went through. My Grandfather fought in the European Theater.
    The hardest part of fighting a war on 2 continents nobody gave any mentions of what was going on in each conitnent.
    My Dad always said he never knew how bad it was over there.So it bothered him a lot.
