Inhaltsangabe:

P.T. Deutermann's World War II navy series began with the award-winning "Pacific Glory," followed by the brilliantly reviewed "Ghosts of Bungo Suido." His new novel "Sentinels of Fire" tells the tale of a lone destroyer, the "USS Malloy," part of the Allied invasion forces attacking the island of Okinawa and the Japanese home islands.

By the spring of 1945, the once mighty Japanese fleet has been virtually destroyed, leaving Japan open to invasion. The Japanese react by dispatching hundreds of suicide bombers against the Allied fleet surrounding Okinawa. By mid-May, the Allied fleet is losing a major ship a day to murderous swarms of kamikazes streaming out of Formosa and southern Japan. The radar picket line is the first defense and early warning against these hellish formations, but the Japanese direct special attention to these lone destroyers stationed north and west of Okinawa.

One destroyer, the "USS Malloy," faces an even more pressing issue when her Executive Officer Connie Miles begins to realize that the ship's much-admired Captain Pudge Tallmadge is losing his mind under the relentless pressure of the attacks. Set against the blazing gun battles created by the last desperate offensive of the Japanese, Executive Officer Miles and the ship's officers grapple with the consequences of losing their skipper's guidance and perhaps the ship itself and everyone on board.

Vividly authentic, historically accurate, and emotionally compelling, "Sentinels of Fire" is military adventure at its best, by an author whose career as a Navy captain informs every page."

Rezension:

Praise for "Pacific Glory"
"An epic, eloquent, and stirring tribute to those who served in the Pacific campaign during World War II...a war novel that is both sweeping and intensely personal. It begins with Guadalcanal and Midway and concludes with the largest naval battle in history, Leyte Gulf. Brutal yet poignant, this excellent novel will appeal to fans of David L. Robbins's World War II novels ("Broken Jewel"; "War of the Rats")." --"Library Journal" (starred review)

""Pacific Glory" is a tale brilliantly told for anyone who loves history or an adventure in the spirit of Patrick O'Brian. Deutermann's eye for capturing the romance, valor, and sacrifice of life at sea is unforgettable. From the first pages, as Deutermann reels you in, you are hooked, drawn into the past and finally delivered back to the future, a journey taken with unforgettable characters." --Doug Stanton, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "Horse Soldiers" and "In Harm's Way

""Entertaining...those who like pulse-thumping action, cinematic prose, and intrepid heroes will be rewarded." --"Publishers Weekly

""Authentic down to the last riveting detail, "Pacific Glory" will mesmerize anyone who wants to relive the U.S. Navy's war with Japan - while a mysterious love story about three Annapolis men in love with the same exotic woman winds through the bomb blasts and salvos." --Thomas Fleming, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "Time and Tide"

Praise for Sentinels of Fire:
With echoes of both Thomas Heggen's "Mr. Roberts "(1946) and Herman Wouk's "The Caine Mutiny "(1952), in which a junior officer must try to maintain the efficiency and spirit of the crew under a captain's relentlessly mean and vicious command, this is an excellent WWII naval adventure from an author whose backlist includes the award-winning "Pacific Glory "(2011), among other military-themed novels.--"Booklist"
