General Smith out-Stilwells Stilwell in this blistering diatribe against the Navy, the Army, indeed practically everybody but "Howling Mad's" own Marines. Yet despite his pugnacity and blatant bias, Smith's account of the Pacific War as he fought it from Tarawa to Iwo Jima is of first-rate historical importance.
