Of all the Historians who wrote books about World War 2 John Toland is one of the few that sticked to the history credo of a writer.
Write about history as it happened and do not put any biased opinion in it.
William Shirer The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich would have been a much better book if he would have avoided putting his own biased opinions in it.
This particular book and Adolf Hitler is a hard book to put down when you start it as you want to know more and more.
I recommend any books that was written by John Toland.

A fantastic read! I've read many other books about the Pacific, mostly centered on specific battles, war crimes and treatment of POWs. But this book provided a great overview of the lead up, the conflict, and the aftermath. I learned alot about the prewar years and conditions that lead to war and I was amazed at how close the two powers came towards peace in the beginning. It's amazing the effect a small number of people can have on the course of history, and the lives that are interwoven in it.
