A thoroughly good read.
This is an essential read for anyone interested in Midway or naval aviation.
Rigby tells an exciting tale with action coming in right away in the first chapters.
New York Journal of Books
I found the narrative engaging, especially the exceptional detail in which the author sets up the various engagements and the unexpected difficulties with radio communication, drawing me deeper into every chapter. I became completely invested in this ambitious yet modest officer, pilot, and commander. This book is truly the story of the right man being in the right place at the right time, ultimately bringing about the victory of the Battle of Midway.
[Rigby's] biography provides a fresh perspective on one of history's most famous battles.
This is a sweeping history, but the author is well-equipped to tell it, having written a number of aviation titles previously. This new work continues his tradition of engaging storytelling, in-depth research, and an ability to make a broad subject accessible and relatable to the reader. The book admirably compiles the history of the Far East Air Forces into one useful volume.
