Highly detailed you can't come out of these without feeing a great deal of respect for the men on both sides.
That reminds me of his also excellent one-volume book on the Pacific sub campaign-- Silent victory, IIRC. And back on dry land, I really liked his Forgotten War. It covered the opening year of the Korean War, with special emphasis on US Army leadership, battalion-level on up, and on the integration of African-Americans.
My Twilight claim to fame: I ran "Allegheny Uprising" at Allegheny College, spring of 1988.
