I've just finished reading Bill Sloan's Given Up for Dead. Since my knowledge of the PTO is still sketchy, I'm curious about opinions from more knowledgeable Rogues on the battle. Sloan seems to give much of the blame for the surrender of Wake on three individuals; Winfield Scott Cunningham, for not knowing the situation on the island, Frank Jack Fletcher, for not continuing toward the island and his decision to refuel his old destroyers, and William Pye for recalling Fletcher's task force after receiving the "Issue in doubt" message. According to Sloan, most of the Marines he interviewed felt they should have kept on fighting, especially those on Wilkes. My question is this; should the island have continued to resist, and where, if anywhere, does blame lie for the surrender? Since I haven't read widely on the subject, I would be interested in other viewpoints as well as suggestions on other sources I could read to increase my knowledge.
