Yenne also has several published novels to his credit.

From Ted Green (Historical Association review): Yenne looks at the campaign as a coordinated plan from the Japanese point of view. Gives a true feeling of how the Allied disasters unfolded. Excellent opening section. Gives a good introduction to anyone wanting to learn more about the campaign. This is an excellent book for anyone coming fresh to the subject or only knowing part of the story. A welcome addition to any military history library.
