I am quickly becoming an avid fan of Edwin Hoty's works. This book was another good historical book about WW2. Edwin does a great job of sprinkling first hand accounts with historical data. Blue skies and blood details the battle of the coral sea, which was the first battle (ever) between aircraft carriers. This book was easy to read, and I breezed through it in about a week.

Don't be put off by the blood&guts title. This is a naval historian's attempt to tell it as it really happened, with no punches pulled, and no propaganda. (There were plenty of blunders to go round.) What an epic and heroic struggle this was! The biggest and most important naval battle of WW2. I was 12 years old when this happened and I have not forgotten the valiant men who faught it.

I greatly enjoyed reading this book. My father was on one of the ships involved. Not at the time but later on in the war.
