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.
Small-craft advisories were posted along the East Coast on Friday as Tropical Storm Julia continued to meander off the Carolinas. The National Weather Service posted small-craft advisories along the Atlantic coast from near Charleston, South Carolina , to the Maryland-Delaware border because of winds and swells from Julia. Seas near the shore were expected to be 5 feet (1. 5 meters) or greater because of swells from the storm posing a hazard to small boats. EDT Friday, Julia was centered about 240 miles (385 kilometers) southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, with maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph (65 kph). National Hurricane Center says little change in strength is expected, and Julia is expected to dissipate during the coming days. Meanwhile, former Tropical Storm Ian, which spun at sea for days without threatening land, transitioned to an extratropical storm and was quickly moving to the northeast. The Hurricane Center said its 11 a. m. advisory was the last it was issuing on the storm. Ian was 1,185 miles (1,910 kilometers) south-southwest of Reykjavik, Iceland , racing northeast at 53 mph (85 kph). In the eastern Atlantic, Tropical Storm Karl was centered about 700 miles (1,125 kilometers) west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, and was moving west with maximum sustained winds near 45 mph (75 kph).
