    Informative without being too deepWhile everyone should know the story on the battle of Midway, I wonder how many know about the Coral Sea This book leads you through the build up and then the battle from both sides I found the details for the ships, planes and men interesting as well as informative Never serving in the Navy I came away with a better understanding of what sailors go through I m n sea battles Just an interesting book.

    Straightforward and informative It s a good recounting of the events of Coral Sea I do wish that context was included Not all of us are proficient in navy terminology I was glad that I read The battle of Midway by Craig Symonds first as that has a lot background information.

    This author explains the true causes of our military to fail to deter the Japs at Pearl Harbor.Roosevelt alone was very aware of Jap advances and did nothing to convince the American isolationist public that we are at war He was interested in his 3rd term re election.

    A well written short account of the battleA good read for all those interested in the Coral Sea action but dont want a lengthy account of events.

    A quick read Gives a detailed, blow by blow account of the battle.Somewhat antiseptic Lacks a human touch to the story.
