“Even so, this is a minor quibble. Zeiler, an expert on Japanese American relations and World War II, and DuBois, a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado–Boulder, have performed a real service for the field and are to be commended for their work.” (The Journal of American History, 1 March 2014)
“This would be an essential purchase for academic and special libraries with large humanities collections.” (Reference Reviews, 1 November 2013)
“There is no doubt that, taken as a whole, the Companion is full of first-class, historiographical and bibliographical information and insights. . . Accordingly one can unreservedly recommend it to all University and Departmental libraries as a reliable work of reference on the state of research into the Second World War.” (Cercles, 1 December 2013)
“This companion is destined to become a valuable contribution to the historiography of the war, and should find a welcome home in either the reference or general collection of any academic library. Summing Up. Essential. All academic levels/libraries.” (Choice, 1 September 2013)
