Promotional Information

A remarkable story of grit, guts, and heroism, The Battle for Hell's Island reveals how command of the South Pacific, and the outcome of the Pacific War, depended on control of a single dirt airstrip-and the small group of battle-weary aviators sent to protect it with their lives.

About the Author

Stephen L. Moore, a sixth-generation Texan, graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, where he studied advertising, marketing, and journalism. He is the author of multiple books on World War II and Texas history, including Pacific Payback: The Carrier Fly Boys Who Avenged Pearl Harbor at the Battle of Midway and Taming Texas, a biography of his great-great-great-grandfather William T. Sadler, who was one of the first Texas Ranger captains in the 1830s. Steve lives north of Dallas in Lantana, Texas, with his wife, Cindy, and their three children.

The Battle for Hell's Island will definitely appeal to anyone with an interest in the carrier wars of World War II."--America in WWII "Stephen L. Moore offers what will soon be ranked a major military classic among the past half century's torrent of books on the Pacific War.... Not only does The Battle for Hell's Island highlight new information and examine eyewitness accounts, vignettes and reminiscences hitherto unavailable, the text is a tome of fresh insights and re-evaluated interpretations .... A major, first-rate, authoritative contribution to the literature of WWII."--Leatherneck "Moore's battle descriptions are gripping...[An] important, illuminating book...The Battle for Hell's Island brings vital new insights into how America and its Allies advanced from shellshocked defenders to powerful victors in the Pacific War."--The Dallas Morning News
