“A fabulous, memorable re-creation of how the war was experienced…. The Battle for Hell's Island will definitely appeal to anyone with an interest in the carrier wars of World War II.”—America in WWII

“Guadalcanal was one of World War II’s biggest slugfests, a battle fought in the skies, in the seas, and in the malarial jungles of the Pacific… World War II historian Stephen Moore has crafted an exciting new book on this desperate fight… Not only a great read but an important tribute to the fliers who helped win the Battle of Guadalcanal and World War II.”—James Scott, The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC)

“Stephen L. Moore offers what will soon be ranked a major military classic among the past half century’s torrent of books on the Pacific War…. Not only does The Battle for Hell’s Island highlight new information and examine eyewitness accounts, vignettes and reminiscences hitherto unavailable, the text is a tome of fresh insights and re-evaluated interpretations …. A major, first-rate, authoritative contribution to the literature of WWII.”—Leatherneck

“Moore’s battle descriptions are gripping…[An] important, illuminating book…The Battle for Hell’s Island brings vital new insights into how America and its Allies advanced from shellshocked defenders to powerful victors in the Pacific War.”—The Dallas Morning News
