Fire and Fortitude: The U.S. Army in the Pacific War, 1941-1943

“This eloquent and powerful narrative is military history written the way it should be.”
James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian

“A very fine account of war in the Pacific founded on wide research and excellent judgement.”
—Antony Beevor, New York Times bestselling author of D-Day: The Battle for Normandy and Ardennes 1944: The Battle of the Bulge

“This eloquent and powerful narrative is military history written the way it should be. John C. McManus has seamlessly blended the strategic and tactical story with deep analysis of the political context and social composition of armies that embodied the cultures of the nations from which they were formed. During the two years covered by this book, American forces in the Pacific theater transitioned from fighting on a shoestring defensive to the beginning of mighty offensives that would prove irreversible.”
—James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom
