Synopsis

The Pacific by Hugh Ambrose

THE PACIFIC, by Hugh Ambrose, is a gripping piece of historical writing following the intertwined odysseys of four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy carrier pilot within the Pacific theatre during World War II. Between America's retreat from China in late November 1941 and the moment General MacArthur's airplane touched down on the Japanese mainland in August 1945, five men connected by happenstance fought the key battles of the war against Japan. In THE PACIFIC, Hugh Ambrose focuses on the real-life stories of those five men, who put their lives on the line for their country.
