Allies of a Kind: The United States, Britain, and the War Against Japan, 1941-1945
By Christopher Thorne
Oxford University Press, 1978, 800 pp

The best book on any aspect of World War II to appear in many years. The research is exhaustive, the prose lucid, the analysis subtle. Indispensable not only on its subject but for an understanding of subsequent developments.
