My first impression on picking up this book was "this book is massive". My second impression on reading the blurb on the back was "oh no, a massive book all about war...!" I dived into it anyway and found it difficult to put down, it is brilliant! It isn't just a story about war, it follows a few key characters who are stationed at US Army barracks before Pearl Harbour and basically follows their lives until just after the war starts. This book was so much better than I thought it was going to be, I seriously recommend giving it a go.
