The Rising Tide by Jeff Shaara Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “This is Jeff Shaara at his best, giving us another superb [and] historically grounded novel of one of the most dramatic struggles of World War II.”—George McGovern

Utilizing the voices of the conflict’s most heroic figures, some immortal and some unknown, Jeff Shaara tells the story of America’s pivotal role in World War II: fighting to hold back the Japanese conquest of the Pacific while standing side-by-side with her British ally, the last hope for turning the tide of the war against Germany. As British and American forces strike into the soft underbelly of Hitler’s Fortress Europa, the new weapons of war come clearly into focus.

In North Africa, tank battles unfold in a tapestry of dust and fire unlike any the world has ever seen. In Sicily, the Allies attack their enemy with a barely tested weapon: the paratrooper. As battles rage along the coasts of the Mediterranean, the momentum of the war begins to shift, setting the stage for the Battle of Normandy.  The first book in a trilogy about the military conflict that defined thetwentieth century, The Rising Tide is an unprecedented and intimate portrait of those who waged this astonishing global war.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's The Steel Wave.

The Rising Tide (Jeff Shaara) Book Reviews

Burden of commandA wonderful attempt To let us know what is said behind the scenes Most enlisted personnel never knew, But Jeff pretty much untangles the burden of command.Score: 5/5

Story great--maps and diagrams poorSorry for the short review as I'm typing it via my Itouch. In brief a good Shaara novel. The reason for the three stars is because this iBook presentation of the maps was extremely poor. First they are scan in at low resolution so they are too small zoomed out and and too pixelated zoomed in to be of any use. Second, the landscape figures were always sideways on the screen. Rotating the itouch only made it worse. I had to lay on my side or tilt my head sideways to view these! These are the fault of the iBook implementation of this novel. They should be able to do a better job given you are paying the retail paperback price!.Score: 3/5
