ABOUT THE FLEET AT FLOOD TIDE
From the seas of the Central Pacific to the shores of Japan itself, The Fleet at Flood Tide is an extraordinary narrative orchestration of the most strategically vital operation of the Pacific War—the conquest of the Mariana Islands in the summer of 1944, and the war-ending consequences of their use. Timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, here is an unprecedented account of the campaign that brought the U.S. Navy to the apex of its power and supremacy. Here is the broadly encompassing story of the most consequential U.S. campaign of WW2, from the struggles for Saipan, Tinian, and Guam to the spectacle of the aerial battles of the Marianas Turkey Shoot to the strategic bombing campaign that culminated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. James D. Hornfischer has written a deeply humane portrait of ordinary people, American and Japanese alike, caught in the vortex of World War II’s world-changing finale.
