War in the Pacific (Graphic Modern History: World War II) Reviews
I'm eleven years old.
I like this graphic novel series and have several others in my collection. The artwork in this volume (War in the Pacific) is excellent but my only beef is with the second story in the book, Kamikaze Attack!--Leyte Gulf November 27, 1944. The artist drew the helmets of the sailors on board the light cruiser USS Montpelier in the old WWI era "Doughboy," soupbowl Kelly helmet (like the British helmets of both World Wars). While U.S. soldiers and sailors wore this style helmet during the early months of 1941, the newer M1 rounded helmet was ubiquitous by mid-1942, except in those areas of the South Pacific that were not able to be reinforced prior to their surrender to the Japanese (ie, Bataan, Corregidor, Philippines). But this story was set in 1944 on board a U.S. cruiser and the gun crew of the 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun would undoubted be wearing the M1 rounded helmet. How this discrepancy evaded the author and artist is quite baffling. See attached photo of 40mm Bofors gun crew on the USS Montpelier
