New Book on Midway Forthcoming
Jonathan Parshall (founder of Nihon Kaigun and contributor of WW2DB) and Anthony Tully (contributor of Nihon Kaigun) will be publishing a new book on Midway with emphasis from the Japanese side of view. The book is scheduled to be in the stores in late fall, 2005. For more information and to sign up for the book's mailing list, please visit http://www.combinedfleet.com/MidwayBook.htm.
"Jonathan Parshall and Anthony Tully explain, in an entirely new light and from a fresh perspective, how the Japanese Navy fought the Battle of Midway. Extensively researched, soundly reasoned, and engagingly and colorfully written, Shattered Sword is the most original piece of scholarship on this decisive event since John B. Lundstrom's groundbreaking The First Team."
-- Robert J. Cressman, editor and principal author of A Glorious Page in Our History: The Battle of Midway, 4-6 June 1942.
