Engrossing... an absorbing world-wide epic... Wortman's brisk narrative takes us across nations and oceans with a propulsive vigor that speeds the book along like a good thriller. * Wall Street Journal * Like the rumble of thunder before a storm, Marc Wortman's 1941: Fighting the Shadow War creates a mesmerizing sense of ominous and terrifying foreboding. This is the fascinating story of the global war that most Americans know almost nothing about -- Nathaniel Philbrick, bestselling author of IN THE HEART OF THE SEA Even readers familiar with the broad history of the era are likely to find new insights and new details of the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that preceded Pearl Harbor.

Highly recommended. * Kirkus Reviews (starred review) * A fascinating narrative of a domestic conflict presaging America's plunge into global war. * Booklist (starred review) * Marc Wortman's 1941: Fighting the Shadow War tells the story of America's plunge into World War II in a way that is smart, suspenseful, and full of surprising historical twists. 1941 has the sweep and intimacy of an epic novel and the pace of a military thriller. -- Debby Applegate, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for THE MOST FAMOUS MAN IN AMERICA
