"Plucking real-life figures directly from the pages of history and deploying them alongside fictional characters, Shaara whips up all the fury and the frenzy associated with the final days of the war."
From the Publisher
Editors Note When the United States military refocuses on the war in Japan after the defeat of Germany, the island of Okinawa is targeted as part of a plan to halt conflicts that are inflicting massive casualties on both sides, prompting B-29 pilot Paul Tibbets to accept a mission with world-changing implications.
Annotation Victory in Europe is no solace to the soldiers grinding bloodily away in the Pacific Theater at the end of the Second World War. Jeff Shaara's THE FINAL STORM takes a close-up look at the Battle of Okinawa as American troops contend with desperate Japanese, the burdened U.S. admiral tries to balance personalities within the joint chiefs of command, and a pressured Imperial Army General who realizes his homeland cannot be defended against the coming Allied onslaught. Meanwhile, United States scientists inch closer to a secret destined to end the war in a deadly flash, and render moot all the ground and sea chess matches that so absorb the novel's cast.
