The Conquering Tide War in the Pacific Islands 1942 1944 Vol 2 Book Description :

A New York Times Bestseller "A beautiful blend of history and prose and proves again Mr. Toll’s mastery of the naval-war narrative." —Wall Street Journal This masterful history encompasses the heart of the Pacific War—the period between mid-1942 and mid-1944—when parallel Allied counteroffensives north and south of the equator washed over Japan's far-flung island empire like a "conquering tide," concluding with Japan's irreversible strategic defeat in the Marianas. It was the largest, bloodiest, most costly, most technically innovative and logistically complicated amphibious war in history, and it fostered bitter interservice rivalries, leaving wounds that even victory could not heal. Often overlooked, these are the years and fights that decided the Pacific War. Ian W. Toll's battle scenes—in the air, at sea, and in the jungles—are simply riveting. He also takes the reader into the wartime councils in Washington and Tokyo where politics and strategy often collided, and into the struggle to mobilize wartime production, which was the secret of Allied victory. Brilliantly researched, the narrative is propelled and colored by firsthand accounts—letters, diaries, debriefings, and memoirs—that are the raw material of the telling details, shrewd judgment, and penetrating insight of this magisterial history. This volume—continuing the "marvelously readable dramatic narrative" (San Francisco Chronicle) of Pacific Crucible—marks the second installment of the Pacific War Trilogy, which will stand as the first history of the entire Pacific War to be published in at least twenty-five years.

Pacific Crucible War at Sea in the Pacific 1941 1942 Vol 1 Book Description :

Winner of the Northern California Book Award for Nonfiction "Both a serious work of history…and a marvelously readable dramatic narrative." —San Francisco Chronicle On the first Sunday in December 1941, an armada of Japanese warplanes appeared suddenly over Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and devastated the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Six months later, in a sea fight north of the tiny atoll of Midway, four Japanese aircraft carriers were sent into the abyss, a blow that destroyed the offensive power of their fleet. Pacific Crucible—through a dramatic narrative relying predominantly on primary sources and eyewitness accounts of heroism and sacrifice from both navies—tells the epic tale of these first searing months of the Pacific war, when the U.S. Navy shook off the worst defeat in American military history to seize the strategic initiative.

War and Peace Book Description :

"To mark the 75th anniversary of D-day, here is the final triumph--and tragedy--of FDR as U.S. wartime commander in chief, the Allies' key strategist, and prophet of the postwar world. Nigel Hamilton's view of FDR's leadership has revolutionized our understanding of Roosevelt, Churchill, and their competing strategies in World War II. In planning the African and Italian campaigns, FDR had to overcome Churchill's obsession with the Mediterranean and defeat the British prime minister's resistance to mounting D-day. In [this book], his tour de force covering the climactic events of 1944 and '45, Hamilton reveals FDR's genius at Allied leadership: the man most responsible for D-day, and the visionary who planned for a lasting peace he would not live to witness. In Hamilton's trademark detail, we see FDR design, defend, and ultimately insist on the great American-led invasion of France in June 1944, and why--and how--he appointed Eisenhower to command it. As FDR's D-day triumph turns to personal tragedy, however, we watch with heartbreaking compassion as coronary disease threatens his life. Yet how bravely thereafter the dying president attempts, at Hawaii, Quebec, and Yalta, to prepare the United Nations for an American-backed postwar world order. Using hitherto unpublished documents and interviews, Hamilton rewrites the self-serving account of the war strategy given by Winston Churchill in his famous memoirs. Now at last we see FDR in his true role as the Allied mastermind of the war and the architect of postwar peace."--Dust jacket.
