A good example of 1970's Bantam/Jove/Playboy Paperback military history genre, Duane Schultz's book covers the basics of the doomed 1941 Wake Island defense in a crisp and deft manner
Like the battle of the Alamo, the fate of the American defenders of Wake Island became a rallying cry during subsequent encounters. A good example of 1970's Bantam/Jove/Playboy Paperback military history genre, Duane Schultz's book covers the basics of the doomed 1941 Wake Island defense in a crisp and deft manner. I found Appendix II, "The Cunningham Controversy" the most compelling and poignant part.

Like the battle of the Alamo, the fate of the American defenders of Wake Island became a rallying cry during subsequent encounters. This is not an epic work, checking in at just over 200 pages. But it is exciting and well written military history in the fine tradition of Stephen Ambrose and Cornelius Ryan.
