CHARACTERS ↠ Okinawa: The Last Battle S edition is without the maps to be found in the paper version. This is the official account of the battle for Okinawa I read on Kindle There are maps in the book but they are hard to read on Kindle It would be helpful to better understand the various hills discussed if one had a large map to refer to That said the authors did a good job of mixing individual stories in with the larger story of the battle The book includes a good account of the ongoing air sea battle going on just offshore

CHARACTERS ↠ Okinawa: The Last Battle The official US Army account of the battle for the island of O. This was a long tedious read written by a career Navy man the way Navy reports are written with every detail listed out There were so many unit numbers listed I couldn t keep up with them I was stationed on Okinawa in the early 1970s while in the USAF and checked out as many of the battle sites as I could so I had a good idea what they were like and the areas where they were located were on the islands That was a great help as I was reading on my Kindle which made the maps impossible to see even with a magnifying glass One other thing calling the high ground on Okinawa mountains makes most people think of the Rockies or even the Appalachians and that is not the case The hills on Okinawa are steep with tall thick vegetation and volcanic rock that makes it extremely difficult to move through and they were honeycombed with tunnels with many many gun emplacements and sniper nest I am surprised that the US and Allies were able to defeat the Japanese as uickly as they did

REVIEW Okinawa: The Last Battle

CHARACTERS ↠ Okinawa: The Last Battle Kinawa Extraordinarily detailed it is the defiintive story Thi. This book contains incredible detail most of it dull concerning how many LSTs and other such craft were used how many thousands of shells were fired an innumerable list of numbered hills etc It reads like a standard military report which was turned into a PhD dissertation The only saving grace for me were the rare occasions where individual American bravery were highlighted but these occurred only every 60 to 80 pages I will never read this again
