Edward S. Miller may not be a trained historian, but you wouldn't know it from his writings. His previous book, War Plan Orange: The U.S. Strategy to Defeat Japan, 1897-1945 (Naval Institute Press,1991), garnered both critical and popular acclaim and was the winner of numerous awards, including the Society for Military History's Distinguished Book Award and the Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt Naval History Prize. His latest offering should only add to Miller's reputation as both a researcher and a writer.
