     An excellent and comprehensive record of the U.S. Marines in the air in World War II's Pacific Theatre, written with an eye toward what the participants in these operations would want to know. In this sense it has much of the feel of a unit history. Well illustrated. Valuable appendices on Medals of Honor, enemy aircraft shot down, unit sketches, and much more. Sherrod based this history on several hundred war diaries, reports of the squadrons, operation reports, interviews, and translated Japanese documents. Bound in gray cloth over boards with spine lettered in blue and red, color endpaper maps. Front free endpaper has a diagonal crease across top fore corner. Minor extremity wear, slight browning to textblock edges. Hinges sound. Nice copy.
