Reviews

"A gripping narrative of the central Pacific campaign.... Toll is strong on the operational details of battle, but he is no less skilled at presenting something that is frequently missing from military histories, a well-rounded depiction of the home front on both sides." -- Walter R. Borneman - New York Times Book Review
"Toll's absorbing text flows smoothly and quickly, helped along by anecdotes and stories involving combatants and political leaders on both sides." -- S. I. Dunn - Dallas Morning News
"Ian Toll takes his place as one of the great storytellers of war. He is equally vivid and commanding describing landing on a carrier at night, making grand strategy in Washington, and brawling in a bar in Australia. Toll is a master; he is writing for the ages." -- Evan Thomas, author of Sea of Thunder and Ike's Bluff
"A lucid and learned exposition of the grand chess match between high commanders in the middle years of the Pacific War, vividly evoking the grit and gristle of its many horrors and triumphs. Ian W. Toll is a superb historian whose writing appeals to both the head and the heart." -- James D. Hornfischer, author of Neptune's Inferno: The U.S. Navy at Guadalcanal
