The Pacific War changed abruptly in November 1943 when Admiral Chester Nimitz unleashed a new offensive across the Central Pacific, spearheaded by fast carrier task forces and U.S. Marines. The sudden American proclivity for bold amphibious assaults into the teeth of prepared defenses astonished Japanese commanders. This is the story of seven relentless 'storm landings' executed against murderous enemy fire. Alexander s book vividly portrays the sheer drama of these three-dimensional battles whose magnitude and ferocity may never again be seen in this world.
