Next Event: Author James Hornfischer in conversation with Cari Clark, discussing his latest book: The Fleet at Flood Tide

James
With its thunderous assault into the Mariana Islands in June 1944, America crossed the threshold of total war. The Fleet at Flood Tide is an extraordinary narrative orchestration of this momentous clash of nations and cultures. Drawing on new primary sources and personal accounts by Americans and Japanese alike, Hornfischer has produced a gripping narrative with cinematic scope and penetrating insight. Here is Raymond Spruance, the brilliant, coolly calculating commander of the Fifth Fleet; Kelly Turner, whose amphibious forces delivered Marine General "Howlin' Mad" Smith's troops to the beaches of Saipan and Tinian; Draper Kauffman, founder of the Navy unit that predated today's SEALs; Paul Tibbets, the creator of history's first atomic striking force, who flew the Enola Gay to Hiroshima; and Japanese warriors and civilians who saw the specter of defeat as the ultimate test of the spirit. From the seas of the Central Pacific to the shores of Japan itself, The Fleet at Flood Tide is a stirring and deeply humane account of World War II's world-changing finale.
