Thanks guys. I ended going with my original choice, "Neptune's Inferno".
I've read some of your suggestions (notably "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors", "Rising Sun", and "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich"). 220-9er, thanks for mentioning "With the Old Breed". I consider that not just a good history book, but one of the most powerful books I've ever read.
But some of these suggestions are unfamiliar and I am will to look into them; thank you for these recommendations!
