The months-long struggle for Peleliu was one of the hardest fought campaigns of the Pacific War. It should be better known and now, thanks to Joseph Wheelan's exhaustively researched and beautifully and sensitively crafted study, it will take its rightful place alongside the iconic battles of Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
Saul David, author of 'Crucible of Hell'
Using his signature deep research and powerful narrative, Joseph Wheelan tells us the story of this too often overlooked campaign through the actions of the men on both sides that fought on this island and the commanders who led them… A great read for anyone interested in the Pacific War or in general military history.
James P. Duffy, author of 'Return to Victory' and 'War at The End of The World'
