Editorial Reviews

Review

"An entertaining, impressively researched chronicle of the tense period between the bombing of Pearl Harbor and American victory at the battle of Midway."
Kirkus

"Revealing and poignant, Toll’s latest deftly navigates the rough waters of the Pacific struggle with flying colors."
Publishers Weekly

"Excellent. The research is thorough, the writing clear, and the narrative flow exemplary…It is difficult to think of a recent book on this subject that is of such consistently outstanding value."
Roland Green, Booklist (starred review)

"Well documented―albeit from previously published materials―and well written. Experienced World War II history buffs may bypass if they feel no need to read another retelling of this phase of the Pacific War, but nonspecialists and general readers will want to consider it."
Library Journal

"Toll’s book does a good job of capturing strategy, tactics, weaponry and, especially, people, on the Japanese side as well as the American…You won’t set [
Pacific Crucible] aside."
Harry Levins, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
