I give this one of my highest ratings for WWII histories because the author has included many never-before-accessed records, accounts, quotes and entire passages.

The one warning: he supports Claire Chennault's "air power wins everything" view instead of Stillwell's "infantry will make final decision" choice. And the author doesn't make a solid or even consistent reasoning for this.

But his great use of 1990s and early 2000s records make this a fascinating read. It might not be The Best for a WWII introduction, by the way.
