Description

Praise for Storm Over Leyte

"A book every serious World War II student will want."--Kirkus

"The strongest part of the book is Prados's description of the U.S. intelligence apparatus that meticulously tracked the Japanese military's communications, leveraging a small army of brilliant linguists, radio operators, cryptologists, and analysts. The work is exceedingly balanced and provides detailed portraits of the personalities of the Japanese commanders, their understanding of events, and their decision-making processes."--Publishers Weekly

"A narrative filled with new information, Storm Over Leyte clears new ground, reminding us that there were two sides in the Pacific War. John Prados shows us how U.S. and Japanese intelligence decisions influenced the Battle of Leyte Gulf, allowing the Japanese to accomplish their naval goals. Burrowing into hitherto unknown intelligence reports, Prados has provided readers with an unprecedented look at the war within the war in the Pacific Campaign. This is a must read."--Mark Perry, Author of The Most Dangerous Man in America: The Making of Douglas MacArthur

"Aircraft on suicide missions, ignoring intelligence, unreliable sources--9/11? No, the battle of Leyte, history's greatest naval fight. In Storm Over Leyte, premiere military historian John Prados, armed with reams of newly uncovered documents, provides a box-seat view of both sides of the infamous conflict. And along the way, he also shows that intelligence failures began long before 9/11."--James Bamford, Author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America

"Once again, John Prados has given us an essential study of events we thought we knew well, blending dynamic narration with insight and fine analysis to create the best study of this critical battle yet."--Theodore F. Cook, PhD, Coauthor of Japan at War: An Oral History

"Prados constructs battle narratives that are fluid, dramatic, and engaging."--Naval History
