Marsh Vincent, Mick McCarty, and Tommy Lewis were inseparable friends during their naval academy years, each man in love with the beautiful, unattainable Glory Hawthorne. Only Tommy wins her heart and marries Glory after graduation. Different skills set the three men on separate paths in the Navy, but they are all forever changed by the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941.

Glory, now Tommy's widow, is a tough Navy nurse still grieving her loss while trying to save lives at the Pearl Harbor naval hospital. Marsh, a surface ship officer, finds himself in the thick of terrifying sea combat from Guadalcanal, through the turning point at Midway, to a climactic showdown with the Japanese fleet at Leyte Gulf. Mick, a hotshot fighter pilot with a drinking problem and a chip on his shoulder, seeks redemption after a series of failures leaves him grounded and ashamed.

Filled with wide-screen action, romance, and heroism tinged with the brutal reality of war, Pacific Glory is an old-fashioned military adventure of the first order.

    " Wonderful novel of WWII in Pacific. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob Roy | 1/4/2014

    " This is not just another war novel of the "Big One." It is rather, a tale of courage, sacrifice, love, and fear. We always see the Naval flyers as the heroes of the Pacific war, but here is the story of the lowly destroyer and unbelievable courage. "

    " Excellent historical fiction, from an author whose father was there. It seems to make it more authentic! The battle descriptions seem very realistic - war really is hell. Adding the personal tragedies and triumphs of the characters makes this a very very good book! "

    " Great novel! I am waiting for his next WW II submarine book coming out in 2013. "

    " Good historical fiction. A lot of the action took place during sea battles - both with destroyers, carriers, and planes. If I enjoyed all of that detail I probably would have given this more stars. I think it will be a great choice for fans of WWII stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 8/22/2013

    " Historical novel set in Pacific ocean during later stages of WWII. Very descriptive and brutal battle scenes interspersed with background love story and frienship of Naval Academy grads. More nautical detail than I could understand but an intense read which dramatically presents the hell of war. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 8/4/2013

    " It was great read re WWII. It was about a captain who loved someone at Pearl Harbor and was shipped out met someone else. It shows you how people did fall in love during the war. "

    " Three and a half stars rounded up. "

    " Personal fictional stories are interwoven into the navy battles of WW2. This was of particular interest to me as my father was at the Leyte Gulf battle. I enjoyed listening to this book, but one should know the battle scenes and injuries are described in horrific detail. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 happy | 10/8/2012

    " Enjoyable read. Follows two Annapolis classmates and the widow of a third from Pearl Harbor through Leyte Gulf. I thought his discriptions of the destroyer actions at Leyte Gulf were riviting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine Mayes | 10/4/2012

    " This is a difficult book to rate. The first 200 pages werea moderately interesting, but a familiar story of WW II. The last 100 pages were riveting - excellent, gripping storytelling. I would recommend it just for the last 100 pages or so, which I would rate as a 5 star portion. "

    " LOVED this book - probably because it was involved the Navy during World War II. "
