Editorial Reviews

Review

"No one has told the story of World War II in the Pacific, from beginning to bitter end, better than Ian W. Toll. This final volume concludes a brilliant trilogy. Elegant and supremely readable―don’t miss the finest military history of 2020."
Alex Kershaw, New York Times best-selling author of The First Wave and Avenue of Spies

"I’ve been a fan of Ian W. Toll’s since his first book, Six Frigates, but this concluding volume of his Pacific War Trilogy has taken him to another level altogether. Twilight of the Gods grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let go until the very end―an epic masterpiece of military history."
Nathaniel Philbrick, National Book Award–winning author of In the Heart of the Sea and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize

"Toll’s expertly navigated narrative includes a number of new insights…It is exhaustive and authoritative and it shows the Navy in World War II as it really was, warts and all."
Mark Perry, New York Times Book Review

"[A] magnificent saga of the last year of the Pacific War…every bit as captivating as his first two [volumes]―Pacific Crucible and The Conquering Tide."
Evan Thomas, Air Mail

"Toll weaves a brilliant final act depicting one of humanity’s epic tragedies. This book and its predecessors set a high bar for historians of the Pacific War."
Jonathan W. Jordan, Wall Street Journal

"Using meticulous research, including previously untapped primary sources, and a brisk narrative that combines strategic, operational, and personal perspectives, [Toll] presents a very balanced look at the critical decisions and actions on both sides that concluded the war."
Jerry Lenaburg, New York Journal of Books

"In his masterly narrative, Ian W. Toll brings clarity and a stinging immediacy to America’s long, bitter climb up the island ladder that led to Japan. With deft, incisive character sketches, Toll summons the leaders back to contentious life: arguing about what to do, making mistakes, bringing triumph out of disaster―and sometimes the reverse. This is maritime history at its best and most accessible."
Richard Snow

"Written with flair and chock-full of stories both familiar and fresh, this monumental history fires on all cylinders. WWII aficionados will be enthralled."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[A] richly rewarding history."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

From the Back Cover

Praise for the Pacific War Trilogy:

 

THE CONQUERING TIDE

"A gripping narrative of the central Pacific campaign…Toll is strong on the operational details of battle, but he is no less skilled at presenting something that is frequently missing from military histories, a well-rounded depiction of the home front on both sides."
– Walter R. Borneman, New York Times Book Review

"A beautiful blend of history and prose and proves again Mr. Toll’s mastery of the naval-war narrative."
– Jonathan W. Jordan, Wall Street Journal

"A lucid and learned exposition of the grand chess match between high commanders in the middle years of the Pacific War, vividly evoking the grit and gristle of its many horrors and triumphs. Ian W. Toll is a superb historian whose writing appeals to both the head and the heart."
– James D. Hornfischer, author of The Fleet at Flood Tide

 

PACIFIC CRUCIBLE

"Vivid, fast moving and highly readable."
– Ronald Spector, Wall Street Journal
