On the recommendation of my esteemed co-blogger I just bought these books:
Neptune's Inferno: The US Navy at Guadalcanal
Shattered Sword: The Untold Story of the Battle of Midway
The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the US Navy's Finest Hour
Usually I buy stuff like this in paperback or hard cover so I can flip back and forth between the maps and the narrative, but this time I bought them for my Kindle app on the iPad. So this is something of an experiment, if you follow me. To see if the Kindle works for a book where you want to consult a map as you go.
