This novel is set in the war in the Pacific in 1943. It seems a bit of a throw-back to an older style of war fiction. It starts with the invasion of Tarawa and continues on other Islands. I used to read lots of WWII war novels, as a kid. I thought it would be interesting to see how they are these days.

I didn’t read the book flap completely enough to spot that this is one in a series about a character named Josh Thurlow. The others in the series might also be worth a look.
