From the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of No Easy Day comes a thrilling World War II story of the American airborne soldiers who captured a Japanese-held island fortress

About the Author

Kevin Maurer is an award-winning journalist who has covered military operations for nearly two decades. He has been embedded with combat troops many times, including with the 82nd Airborne Division during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and with a Special Forces team in Afghanistan for ten weeks in 2010. His books include the massively successful No Easy Day, the inside story of the Bin Laden raid, cowritten with former Navy SEAL Mark Owen.


"Excellent... well-told and riveting."-The Wall Street Journal

"A riveting account of the intense combat to liberate the island... heart-pounding... Rock Force is an account of an important event in American history that reads like an exciting adventure novel. It should be on the Army's recommended professional reading list. Military historians, or anyone just looking for a great book to read, will not be disappointed."-ARMY magazine

"At its heart, Rock Force is a compelling war story, and Maurer concentrates on where his affinities lay: those troopers whose boots were on the ground. Their stories of valor and tragedy will hook readers from the very first page."-World War II magazine

"Maurer has a clear and thorough understanding of our world, allowing him to translate complex military concepts into ideas anyone can grasp. In Rock Force, he recounts historical detail exceptionally well while writing at the pace of an adventure novel."-Soflete blog

"Corregidor is hallowed ground: the Alamo of the Pacific, a fortress where Americans valiantly held off the Japanese before ultimately surrendering in the dark early days of World War II. The recapture of this volcanic citadel nearly three years later is one of the great stories of the war, and in Kevin Maurer's capable hands, it's a heart-pounding thriller. Readers will duck the buzz of bullets, shake with the thunder of explosions and smell the acrid cordite that filled the air amid this hellacious battle. Rock Force is not only terrific read, but also a testament to the bravery of the men who sacrificed so much to retake Corregidor."-James M. Scott, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of Target Tokyo and Rampage

Rock Force
is simply astounding. Kevin Maurer transports readers to the battlefield on Corregidor in a way that only one who has spent time in conflict zones can. I am humbled with every turn of the page, marveling at heroes one and all."-Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL sniper and New York Times bestselling author of Savage Son

"Rock Force is a beautifully told story of war: the friendships, the courage and despair, and the terror. With the turn of each page, you come to truly know men like First Lt. Bill Calhoun, a grizzled platoon leader within the 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment. This vivid, action-packed thriller is one of the most exciting books ever written about the Pacific War."-Mitch Weiss, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling coauthor of Countdown 1945

"They say there are no words to ever truly describe the duality of man, or of war. With Rock Force, Kevin Maurer comes as close as you can come to telling the emotion, sacrifice and limits of human endurance and determination of the struggle to take the Rock."-Rusty Bradley, coauthor on Lions of Kandahar

"Maurer's second foray into military history captures the language and trappings of World War II, but reads like a current event. MacArthur met his match with the men he left to take back Corregidor, and history has met its match with Maurer's retelling."-Kelly Kennedy, author of They Fought for Each Other: The Triumph and Tragedy of the Hardest Hit Unit in Iraq

Rock Force
is a brilliant, deeply moving story of men locked in combat. It is genuine, compelling and utterly riveting-and essential reading for every student of history."-David Zucchino, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Wilmington's Lie
