His new book is The Battle for Hell’s Island: How a Small Band of Carrier Dive-Bombers Helped Save Guadalcanal.
Recently I asked him about what he was reading. Moore's reply:
More often than not, I read books related to subjects that I am currently studying or have ongoing interest in.Visit Stephen L. Moore's website.
I’m currently reading William H. Bartsch’s Victory Fever on Guadalcanal. His liberal use of first-person accounts, both Japanese and American, bring refreshing new detail to one of the most vicious fights endured by U.S. Marines in the Pacific War, the Battle of Tenaru. I really appreciate such books that blend fast-paced reading with accurate details—due to this author’s ability to dig deep into both eyewitness and official records.
Recently, I read Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides. Although it has been out for a while, it is a remarkable story of one of the greatest rescue missions of World War II. It also of great interest to me since a small part of it touches on one of my upcoming projects.
