Sentinels of Fire

(2014)
(The third book in the WWII series)
A novel by

 
P.T. Deutermann's World War II navy series began with the award-winning "Pacific Glory," followed by the brilliantly reviewed "Ghosts of Bungo Suido." His new novel "Sentinels of Fire" tells the tale of a lone destroyer, the "USS Malloy," part of the Allied invasion forces attacking the island of Okinawa and the Japanese home islands.By the spring of 1945, the once mighty Japanese fleet has been virtually destroyed, leaving Japan open to invasion. The Japanese react by dispatching hundreds of suicide bombers against the Allied fleet surrounding Okinawa. By mid-May, the Allied fleet is losing a major ship a day to murderous swarms of kamikazes streaming out of Formosa and southern Japan. The radar picket line is the first defense and early warning against these hellish formations, but the Japanese direct special attention to these lone destroyers stationed north and west of Okinawa.One destroyer, the "USS Malloy," faces an even more pressing issue when her Executive Officer Connie Miles begins to realize that the ship's much-admired Captain Pudge Tallmadge is losing his mind under the relentless pressure of the attacks. Set against the blazing gun battles created by the last desperate offensive of the Japanese, Executive Officer Miles and the ship's officers grapple with the consequences of losing their skipper's guidance and perhaps the ship itself and everyone on board. Vividly authentic, historically accurate, and emotionally compelling, "Sentinels of Fire" is military adventure at its best, by an author whose career as a Navy captain informs every page."
