The Pacific by Hugh Ambrose
The Pacific is the book tie-in to the HBO miniseries. Even if you have seen the miniseries, the book goes into more historical depth and includes additional characters which bring great richness to the popular understanding of the war in the Pacific.
Hugh is every bit as interesting a writer as his father. I recommend this book highly to anyone wanting to see the human side of the Pacific theater of WW II.
