THE CONQUERING TIDE delves into the period between mid-1942 to mid 1944 in the Pacific theater of World War II, where many of the greatest and bloodiest battles of the war took place. Drawing on eyewitness accounts and primary sources from both the military and the political sphere, Toll paints a complete and stunning portrait of the conflict on both sides, from the start of the Allied push into the chain of Japanese-held islands in the Pacific to the Marianas Islands, a catastrophic turning point for Japan.
