It’s a somewhat artistic approach to telling the story. It comes off as more boring than it needs to be. Although, if you enjoy listening to audio while you go to sleep, this is perfect.
And so well done: I’m recommending it to one and all!
So much handwringing over an inevitability
I can’t finish this series.
It’s physics kid and had the people involved in this story not followed through others would have.
My grandfather was a Marine who participated in the island hopping campaigns in the pacific and the experiences of warfare in that theater made it clear that an invasion of the Japanese homeland would have cost far more in blood and treasure than that of the 2 nuclear weapons used before the war ended and he had no doubt that the war ended as a direct consequence of them.
It’s always annoying to me when historical events are viewed through a modern rather than contemporary lens and this series immediately falls into this trap.
Your grandfather had a job, did it well and you should be nothing but proud of his skills and accomplishments.
I am even if you are not.
