“A beautiful blend of history and prose and proves again Mr. Toll’s mastery of the naval-war narrative, carrying the reader smoothly from the marble halls of Washington to the Pacific’s gritty, red-stained beaches.”


(Jonathan W. Jordan

- Wall Street Journal)

“No one has told the story of World War II in the Pacific, from beginning to bitter end, better than Ian W. Toll. This final volume concludes a brilliant trilogy. Elegant and supremely readable―don’t miss the finest military history of 2020.”


(Alex Kershaw - New York Times best-selling author of The First Wave and Avenue of Spies)

“Toll’s expertly navigated narrative includes a number of new insights…It is exhaustive and authoritative and it shows the Navy in World War II as it really was, warts and all.”


(Mark Perry, New York

Times Book Review)
