Praise

“A fresh and compelling account of the true turning point of the Pacific War.”—Evan Thomas, New York Times Bestselling Author of Ike’s Bluff and Sea of Thunder

“Authoritative…Islands of Destiny serves as a powerful reminder of the geography, the strategy, and the ferocity of the Solomons campaign.”—The Wall Street Journal

Islands of Destiny is essential reading for anyone interested in the Pacific War.”—World War II

“Even casual readers of World War II history will find [Islands of Destiny] engaging, and they will likely agree that the author makes a strong case for his revisionist assessment. A well-crafted addition to the canon of World War II military histories.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[Prados] argues that Guadalcanal and the Solomons campaign, not Midway, were the Pacific War’s true turning point. His use of Japanese primary sources is especially impressive. Imperial Navy figures, often treated as ciphers, regain their humanity in this author’s sympathetic hands.”—San Diego Union-Tribune
