read Shattered Sword: The Untold Story of the Battle of Midway

read Shattered Sword: The Untold Story of the Battle of Midway review Ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Jonathan Parshall Jonathan Parshall ´ 9 read It within the context of the Imperial Navy's doctrine and technology With a foreword by leading WWII naval historian John Lundstrom Shattered Sword will become an indispensable part of any military buff's library Winner of the 2005 John Lyman Book Award for theBest Book in US Naval History and cited by Proceedings as one of its Notable Naval Books for 200. This was a very readable book despite being written in AmericanThe authors are not academic historians though they are not just enthusiasts either and are able to gather and analyse evidence for their thesis which has become the established version nowadays Their lapses into American and enthusiast s slang is likely to affect casual readers view of how much credibility shuld be given to their work but you should just accept that there are other versions of English alive in the world todayTheir thesis is that much of the Japanese side of the historiography of the battle is based on flawed evidence by post war Japanese writers which has been accepted at face value by most American writers other than the ones who actually read available source documents and could see flaws in those Japanese accountsThose flaws are laid bare here and an excellent and logical account of the battle is presented here with many of the populist myths stripped awayThey ARE good writers though and the Americanisms are set in clear reasonably argued and readable languageThe Japanese s runaway success in the opening stages of the wider war the Japanese had been at war with China and even the USSR for several years prior to Pearl Harbour was like the Germans Blitzkrieg success in 1940 based on having a superbly trained weapons system air power that was so far ahead of their opponents that they were virtually unstoppableUnlike the Germans however the Japanese did not have an industrial base to maintain their impetus and when that weapons system suffered damage it could not be repaired and like the Germans they uickly found that their opponents learned from their mistakes and were able to face them down with eually effective forces uite uicklySecondly and unlike the Germans the Japanese were not able to improvise in the face of adversity and where the Germans were able to stave off the effects of enemy material superiority for a while the Japanese were notThe Germans were defeated earlier than the Japanese but they were also facing the combined resources of all the Allied powers whereas Japan was facing a smaller fraction of America s might
