Kaigun: Strategy, Tactics, and Technology in the Imperial Japanese Navy, 1887-1941 - David C. Evans, Mark R. Peattie

This is an absolutely amazing work. Some of the first books I remember reading were about the battles and campaigns in the Pacific during World War II, and I have read many more since. This is the first one which provides an explanation as to why the Japanese had the tactics, doctrines, and ships that they employed during the war. Evans and Peattie are connecting so many pieces of information together for me.
