Classic but Kindle version needs proof-reading 27. März 2014
Von Robert Hines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a classic for any WWII history buff. It's very representative of contemporary war correspondent writing.

However, the Kindle version I purchased and read has more than a few typos and errors that were likely introduced in the conversion of the printed to the electronic version. Unfortunately, the publishers did not put a large emphasis on editing and proof-reading. Unfortunately, I'm seeing this in many Kindle books.

Up close and personal account - no holds barred 16. Januar 2014
Von Tim Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Before embedded became the buzz word for reporters attached to combat units, Robert Sherrod set the standard along with many others. A fantastic unbias look at the carnage, heroism, and ultimate sacrifices those brave young men gave for thier country. My dad too, was of the Greatest Generation - he went to Guadalcanal and did his job, served his country no questions asked; came home and began a good life for us.

So many young men on Tarawa did not get that opportunity. Read this book in their honor and place it high upon your book shelf.

mind boggling! 22. Juli 2014
Von gary zwonitzer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Could not put the book down once i started it
Probably the most graphic description of the horror of war I have read
Again there were way too many grammatical errors and misspelled words. The editors did a terrible job on this one.
I guess their biggest goal was to get it to the printer!
For anyone interested in ww11 this is a must read

Bitter Battle on Betio Island 24. April 2014
Von Saani Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
TARAWA's author, Robert Sherrod has captured a gripping scene of horror and tragedy in a historic moment of battle during WWII. Days of preliminary shelling, warriors following, more shelling from navy ships, amphibious tractors carving tracks in the sea walls, groups and pockets of dead and wounded marines, dead Japanese bodies everywhere. A recommended read for those interested in WWII history in the Pacific theater of operations.

However, and this may be a Kindle problem, the kindle book edition is rife with typos and numerical errors. One gets the impression that the kindle edition was typed by those who do not speak English as their first language. A significant number is typed as "so" numerous times, indistinguishable in its meaning of the tally. This presents an unpleasant impression that USAmerican citizens seeking jobs are left out in the cold of kindle technology and the routine jobs of typing. If this is the situation, it is not worthy of respect for Kindle Books. Ensure the typists use "spell check" before publishing.

A Book Written by a Professional 14. Mai 2014
Von Bill Nichols - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Robert Sherrod was not a military historian but rather an experienced journalist, before WW II, and further, he accompanied the Marines that invaded Tarawa. So, his book is written not just from research but from first hand observation. He had already been involved in an island invasion with the Army in the Aleutions and he had access to the top U. S. Navy and Marine Corps brass who made the decisions, before and during the operation. The book was written shortly after the War and was based on notes he took during the campaign as well as his own memory. That is why, as a reader, I consider the book was written by a professional.

I read the paper back edition many years ago and thought I would refresh my memory by reading the Kindle edition. I served with the Second Marine Division during the War so have a personal interest. On a critical note, not of the author, but of whoever did the proof-reading of the Kindle edition, I don't believe I have ever read a book with so many typos! The proof-reader should be allowed to work on one more book then be led out to participate in a circular firing squad! Seriouly, it detracted from the other wise high quality of the book.

I enjoyed Mr. Sherrod's comments on the value of the Tarawa campaign in the lessons learned and used in the Marshall Islands, just a few months after Tarawa, and again on Saipan, Tinian, and Guam is the summer of 1944. Robert Sherrod, along with a significant number of Marine and Navy top level officers, felt that the Tarawa operation, though costly, was worth while due to lessons learned, plus the use of Tarawa as an air base for the Marshals campaign. Conversely, General Holland M. Smith, in his post war book, "Coral and Brass", disagrees. Both men were very familiar with the Tarawa campaign, so the difference of opinion was quite interesting.
