The Sun Sets Westward: Thrilling Action in the Pacific Kindle Edition
Come aboard a racing American destroyer and experience the “island-hopping” campaign across the Pacific and to the doorstep of Japan itself. From the deck of USS Woodside you'll dodge kamikaze planes, menacing submarines, and fight off enemy surface ships that are determined to sink you.
USS Woodside, a brand-new Fletcher-class destroyer, is headed for a new kind of war. Her predecessor was very successful in the Atlantic battles of WWII, even becoming known as “The U-boat Killer”, but the effort wore her out, so now this new ship, fresh from the builders, heads to war—but a very different kind of war.
The Japanese Navy had achieved astounding successes in the early months of WW II and now controlled much of the western Pacific. Woodside, and the growing might of the Pacific Fleet, would embark on the violent and deadly effort to push the invaders back to their homeland.
Also experience through the eyes of a Japanese destroyer captain, the drama and frustrations as the early gains are lost and success turns to failure.
Readers of the earlier ‘Long Gray Target’ series of novels will feel right at home with the crew they have come to know so well. Surprises abound, too, as other familiar figures make their direct contributions to winning the war.
As always--the story is fiction, but the history is real!
Join the action as “The Sun Sets Westward”!
