The Final Storm: A Novel of the War in the Pacific

The Final Storm: A Novel of the War in the Pacific - Jeff Shaara LOVED this book! I am a huge World War II buff anyway, and I found myself learning something new as I was reading through the book.The view from the soldiers perspective and those involved was riveting. I couldnt put the book down once I started reading! I am looking forward to reading this again, as well as recommending it to my students! His use of history and narrative is amazing! This puts the Okinawa thrust into an entirely different picture, and actually gives you the feeling as though you are right there with the troops!
Thank you to Jeff Shaara for sharing with Goodreads the advance copies, and for allowing me to be among the first to read it. I am very excited to be encouraging friends to get their own copy and read it as well.
