Beschreibung

"" Although the siege of Wake Island was not one of World War II's biggest campaigns, it had a profound psychological effect on the course of the nation's struggle. This was the battle that first raised American spirits in the dark weeks following Pearl Harbor. Based on interviews with over seventy American and Japanese participants, "Facing Fearful Odds" is military history from the bottom up, an unforgettable reading experience told from the perspective of enlisted men and junior officers who served on the front lines.

Pressestimmen

"The gallant stand by a beleaguered group of Americans on Wake Island in the central Pacific during the opening salvos of the Pacific War remains an enduring epic... The author has succeeded superbly in bringing the myriad of facets together while never losing his focus on the human drama."-The Journal of Military History. "An excellent work of military history, Urwin's book should be the last word on the subject for quite a while."-Choice. "Gregory Urwin reports this story with impressive technical thoroughness, placing it in the framework of the Pacific War's early months... Facing Fearful Odds is a well-organised and extremely well-written piece of history."-Sea History
