Reviews

"A literary tour de force that is destined to become one of the . . . definitive works about the battle for Guadalcanal . . . [James D.] Hornfischer deftly captures the essence of the most pivotal naval campaign of the Pacific war."--San Antonio Express-News

"Vivid and engaging . . . extremely readable, comprehensive and thoroughly researched."--Ronald Spector, The Wall Street Journal

"Superlative storytelling . . . the masterwork on the long-neglected topic of World War II's surface ship combat."--Richard B. Frank, HistoryNet

"The author's two previous World War II books . . . thrust him into the major leagues of American military history writers. Neptune's Inferno is solid proof he deserves to be there."--The Dallas Morning News

"The star of this year's reading list is James D. Hornfischer, a military historian whose flair for narrative is rivaled only by his ability to organize the sweep of battle and assess strategy and tactics in layman's terms."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Outstanding . . . The author's narrative gifts and excellent choice of detail give an almost Homeric quality to the men who met on the sea in steel titans."--Booklist (starred review)

"Brilliant . . . a compelling narrative of naval combat . . . simply superb."--The Washington Times
