Hornfischer Tuesday, October 25, 5:30pm at the Marine Museum.
The Fleet at Flood Tide is the extraordinary story of the most consequential campaign of the Pacific War: the U.S. Fifth Fleet's seizure of the Marianas, a relentless deployment of overwhelming force on air, land, and sea that opened the path to total victory over Japan and established a new state of the art in warfare: the first use of the forerunners of today's SEALs; the emergence of massive cross-hemispheric expeditionary operations; the flowering of American naval aviation and carrier power; and the secret training of Marianas-based air crews who would first unleash nuclear fire.
Filled with memorable action set pieces and closely observed portraits of the naval, air, and ground-force warriors and commanders who revolutionized warfare, The Fleet at Flood Tide is the broadly encompassing story of the full materialization of America as a world-class military power.
Come meet the author, Jim Hornfischer, as he launches his new book at Battleship Cove while you enjoy a catered reception with cash bar, and an autographed copy of Jim's new book.
$50 per person. Includes cocktail reception,
