Product description

Review

"Bruce Gamble has done it again! An impeccable researcher and master storyteller with a keen eye for detail and characters, Gamble presents "Target: Rabaul", " "a powerful conclusion to his must-read trilogy on the battle over Japan's Southwest Pacific stronghold. The heart-pounding stories of aerial combat read like a thriller--and show why he is one of the finest writers working today." - "James Scott, "author of" The War Below "and" The Attack on the Liberty"
"The new book offers the same strengths as the first two: Serious research, strategic and operational background, mission-by-mission action, and compelling stories about the human dimension of warfare in the Pacific, including painful accounts of POWs in Japanese captivity. And--as with the first two books--Gamble continues to demonstrate his mastery of writing history that hooks the reader and engages as it informs. Target: Rabaul ends up being packed with mountains of hard data about the air siege of Rabaul, but Gamble wraps the strategic and operational history in plenty of human-interest stories, making the book a quick and pleasurable read." - "StoneBooks.com "

"This is Bruce Gamble's final book in the Rabaul battle trilogy and shows well his 15 years of research as well as his deep understanding of its complex history. Without Gamble's work it is entirely possible this significant and incredibly long battle would be largely forgotten to most." - "Travel for Aircraft"

"With the publication of this magnificent Rabaul Trilogy, former Navy flight officer Bruce Gamble has established himself in the foremost rank of Pacific War historians. In a compelling narrative that reads like an exciting novel, Gamble details "a history of World War II's longest battle," from the capture of Rabaul, New Britain, by the Japanese in January 1942, to its isolation, bombardment and final liberation by Allied forces in August 1945." - "Armchair General"
