This 1993 volume is a collection of edited oral histories of participants in the carrier war in the Pacific.  It’s an extraordinary volume, with insights on everything from strategy and tactics to ship and aircraft design and operation.  

As oral histories will do, it focuses on the experiences of the narrators, and doesn’t present a balanced narrative of the events recounted, but that’s just fine with me.  I am interested in what they did, and saw, and thought was happening.
