Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Savo Island, Midway, and the Battle of Samar, three of the defining naval battles of WWII in the Pacific, will draw history buffs to this riveting novel. It’s largely the story of Annapolis friends Marsh Vincent, who barely survives the Savo debacle, and Mick McCarty, whose dive bombing at Midway sinks a Japanese aircraft carrier that helped devastate Pearl Harbor, and Glory Hawthorne, a woman both love who has become a navy nurse. Having seen the savagery of naval war, Marsh fears he may not have the courage to face it again. Mick, an Annapolis football hero, has problems with alcohol and authority. He fears that he may be grounded. Ultimately, both are off Samar when a small group of tiny escort carriers and destroyers finds itself facing an overwhelming force of cruisers—and the Yamato, the largest battleship ever built. The Japanese are there to wipe out the American landing in the Philippines. Deutermann, known primarily as a writer of suspense novels, was a destroyer captain, and his evocation of naval life and naval war seem virtually note perfect. Battle scenes are filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of horrific chaos. The love triangle might seem a bit familiar, but he makes it work, and he’s completely faithful to the remarkable history that is his subject. --Thomas Gaughan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"An epic, eloquent, and stirring tribute to those who served in the Pacific campaign during World War II...a war novel that is both sweeping and intensely personal. It begins with Guadalcanal and Midway and concludes with the largest naval battle in history, Leyte Gulf. Brutal yet poignant, this excellent novel will appeal to fans of David L. Robbins’s World War II novels (Broken Jewel; War of the Rats). "--Library Journal (starred review)


"Pacific Glory is a tale brilliantly told for anyone who loves history or an adventure in the spirit of Patrick O'Brian. Deutermann's eye for capturing the romance, valor, and sacrifice of life at sea is unforgettable. From the first pages, as Deutermann reels you in, you are hooked, drawn into the past and finally delivered back to the future, a journey taken with unforgettable characters." --Doug Stanton, New York Times bestselling author of Horse Soldiers and In Harm's Way

“Entertaining…those who like pulse-thumping action, cinematic prose, and intrepid heroes will be rewarded.”  --Publishers Weekly

“Authentic down to the last riveting detail, Pacific Glory will mesmerize anyone who wants to relive the U.S. Navy’s war with Japan – while a mysterious love story about three Annapolis men in love with the same exotic woman winds through the bomb blasts and salvos.”-- Thomas Fleming, New York Times bestselling author of Time and Tide

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I'm biased as I have liked everything P.T. Deutermann has published, however, Pacific Glory was Deutermann on steroids. The historical novel genre was a departure from his usual mystery adventures but he produced an historically accurate romance adventure that though a bit mushy at times was fast paced and included some of the most riveting combat scenes I've ever read. And here comes the ultimate compliment: Pacific Glory reminded me several times of Herman Wouk's WWII novels in the descriptive quality of the prose. I very much look forward to P.T. Deutermann's next book, and the one after that, etc. Bravo!

I am a Deutermann fan and have been since his first book. I have read every one of his books. I could not wait to read his latest, "Pacific Glory". Once I started reading Pacific Glory, I was hooked and could not stop. This is Deutermann's best book to-date, and that is saying a lot. This book hit my sweet spot. An incredibe story, awesome writing, and in the end, I was left totally satisfied. A truly great book.

Author P.T. Deutermann has written a very readable novel about the Pacific War from the Battle of Midway to the American invasion of the Philippines.

The story revolves around three main characters. Marsh Vincent initially served on one of the Allied cruisers sunk by the Japanese off Savo Island. After recovering from his injuries, he is ordered aboard the new destroyer, the USS Evans. During his rehabilitation at Pearl Harbor, Marsh meets Sally, a nurse at the base hospital. Soon, the embers of a romance begin to burn. Marsh ends up serving heroically against the Japanese battle fleet at Leyte Gulf, taking command after the captain is killed. He even managed to slide the Evans right next to a Japanese battlewagon and slug it out.

Mick McCarty, classmate of Marsh's, is a carrier-based pilot aboard the USS Yorktown. A notorious drinker and carouser, McCarty is always getting into trouble. He is moved from one ship to another, finally ending up on the escort carrier Madison Bay. As like his friend Marsh, Mick ends up fighting the Japanese fleet at Leyte Gulf. Attacking with only machine guns and light bombs, Mick set his course against the advancing enemy.

Glory Hawthorne, friend to both Mick and Marsh, is a stunningly beautiful navy nurse. Her husband Tommy was killed aboard the USS Arizona. Now, she is struggling to get on with her life. A one-night stand with Mick leaves her unwed, pregnant, and unsure of what to do.

I've read World War II history for many years, along with many novels about World War II, and I really enjoyed "Pacific Glory". The characters are very well-developed, and I developed a relationship with each of them.

One of the best novels of World War II that I have read. From start to finish, it is readable, believable, and the action scenes will keep you turning the pages. A great read.

I didn't think any of P.T's navy stories could be better than Scorpion of the Sea or The Edge of Honor but Pacific Glory wraps it up. Having served in the USN during the early sixties, I can feel the ship when I read this novel. Being a snipe in main control (starboard engine room), It brought back the steam, spinning turbines, reduction gears, throttles, pump noises, sound powered phones and (after steering compartment) back to life in my mind. Also, as in Edge of Honor, this novel brought to a very bright light how the beauty of a woman can affect a man. How a stunning beauty will make a normal man go weak in the knees, along with believing she is untouchable and not in your league. Also, how this beauty can work against a woman in ways she may or may not realize. Deutermann knows the psych of a sailor and a man. GOOD JOB, please write another one like this!

ANOTHER RIVETING ADVENTURE BY MR. DEUTERMANN. ONCE AGAIN I COULD NOT PUT DOWN THE NOVEL. THE AUTHOR'S VIVID DEPICTION OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR PLACES IN THE STORY MADE ME FEEL I WAS THERE AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION! I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND PACIFIC GLORY TO ANYONE WHO IS A NAVY AND HISTORY BUFF.

This is a well written fascinating page turner. Captain P. T. Deuterman's writing just gets better and better. (His first book "Scorpian in the Sea" is a fascinating read.) This fictionalized version of a little know event in World War II, contains fascinating insights into the responsibilities of command and the personal stress produced by the "winds of war". Read it! You won't be able to put it down. Nor will you ever forget it!
