If you are interested in World War IIâ€™s Pacific campaign, then check out â€śNeptuneâ€™s Infernoâ€ť (AUCD 940.542 HOR J) by James D. Hornfischer. It is the story of Americaâ€™s first concerted offensive against the Imperial Japanese juggernaut and the true turning point of WWII in the Pacific. Another neat AUCD is â€śAmerican Roseâ€ť (AUCD B LEE G) by Karen Abbott. It is the phenomenal story of Gypsy Rose Lee and her career in vaudeville. I have read a review of the print version and it really sounds good. I did not know that actress June Havoc was Gypsyâ€™s younger sister.
