Eric Hammel, author of Islands of Hell The U.S Marines in the Western PacificNot for the first time, Bruce Gamble has done amazing work gathering a dazzling array of tiny, little facts, then arranging them in a big, dazzling story that amazes one s inner historian even as it breaks one s heart on its way to a triumphal conclusion Barrett Tillman, author of Whirlwind The Air War Against Japan, 1942 1945To most of the reading public, the aerial siege of Rabaul remains one of the untold stories of the Pacific War Nobody is better qualified than Bruce Gamble to relate that lengthy campaign, beginning with the first 15 months of the conflict The depth and variety of his coverage is exceptional not only the Allied and the Japanese perspectives, but the personalities and their attendant feuds and ultimately the successful air blockade that released the unstoppable might of an industrialized America to take the war ever nearer Japan itself. Anthony Tully, coauthor of Shattered Sword The Untold Story of the Battle of MidwayContinuing his theme of Rabaul opened in Darkest Hour The True Story of Lark Force at Rabaul, Bruce Gamble now continues the saga, moving forward with the Japanese occupation in January 1942 to the almost immediate start of the Allied counter air offensives against Rabaul Gamble sets the stage magnificently, with a compelling description of the geography, volcanic origin and cultural setting and development level of Rabaul at the time of the Japanese occupation After an excellent description of the too little, too late attempts to prepare for the Japanese invasion and the futile attempts to repel the powerful Japanese carrier strikes, the focus shifts to the Japanese construction at Rabaul that will make it the famous fortress port of the Solomons campaign The human drama, Allied and Japanese, is enriched by skillfully placed anecdotes, like a botched demolition of an ammo dump by the Allied garrison to Japanese carrier aircraft having embarrassing results in bombing runs, to behind the scenes bickering of officers and staffs The narrative reads with all the vigor and imagery of a novel, while incorporating copious facts and detailNot only does Fortress Rabaul fill an important gap in the coverage of the Southwest section of the Pacific War, it makes fine and engaging reading.AIR CLASSICSDrawing on a variety of sources from both sides, the author has written a detailed reference book that reads like a novel.
