Ian Toll's first book, Six Frigates, won him a Samuel Eliot Morison Award. Pacific Crucible, his second, offers a compelling narrative of the naval conflict in the year following the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor. The story of the first year of the war in the Pacific is among the most stirring and significant in American military history. Drawing on eyewitness accounts and detailed archival research, Toll recreates the hard won triumphs of the United States Navy after the worst defeat in the nation's annals. A first-rate military history by an award-winning author.
