John C. McManus, “Fire and Fortitude: The US Army in the Pacific War, 1941-1943”

In this engrossing, epic history of the US Army in the Pacific War, John McManus takes readers from Pearl Harbor to Makin, a coral reef where the Army was tested against the increasingly desperate Japanese. In between were nearly two years of punishing combat as the Army transformed, at times unsteadily, from an undertrained garrison force into an unstoppable juggernaut, and America evolved into a global superpower. Enriching the narrative are the voices of men otherwise lost to history: the uncelebrated Army grunts whose bravery and resilience won the war. Presented by the ‘Buzz’ Westfall Favorite Author Series.
