Hello from Utah

My name is Joe. I've always enjoyed reading about history. One area that has always been on the top of my list to read about is WWII. Both of my grandparents served during the war. One was in the Air Force and the other was in the Navy.
I have read several books dealing with WWII in Europe. My favorite book dealing with this subject is The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer. I really enjoyed the approach the author took in explaining the events within Germany and Europe that led up to the war and the explanation of the major events of the war. I have been hoping to find a book that takes a similar approach in explaining why Japan went to war and what it was hoping to achieve.
That is how I stumbled upon this site. I have already learned of several more books that I want to pick up and read from here in just the first few threads I've read. Hopefully I'll be able to find a book or two about Japan's role in the war from start to finish.
Thanks for letting me join you!

Wars are rarely fought in black and white, but in infinite shades of grey

It is the function of the Navy to carry the war to the enemy so that it will not be fought on U.S. soil. Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
