Description
On the first Sunday in December 1941, an armada of Japanese warplanes appeared suddenly over Pearl Harbor and devastated the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Only six months later, in a sea fight north of the tiny atoll of Midway, four Japanese aircraft carriers were destroyed in a decisive American victory. In this book the author of Six Frigates chronicles these first searing months of the Pacific war, when the U.S. Navy shook off its worst defeat ever and seized the strategic initiative. Ian Toll's dramatic narrative encompasses both the high command and the "sailor's-eye" view from the lower deck. Relying predominantly on eyewitness accounts and primary sources, Pacific Crucible also spotlights recent scholarship that has revised our understanding of the conflict, including the Japanese decision to provoke a war that few in the country's highest circles thought they could win.
