John McManus – Fire and Fortitude – St. Louis County Library HQ

July 30 @ 7:00 pm

FREE

In this engrossing, epic history of the US Army in the Pacific War, John McManus, one of our most highly acclaimed historians of World War II, takes readers from Pearl Harbor, a rude awakening for a military woefully unprepared for war, to Makin, a sliver of coral reef where the Army was tested against the increasingly desperate Japanese. In between were nearly two years of punishing combat as the Army transformed from an undertrained garrison force into an unstoppable juggernaut, and America evolved from an inward-looking nation into a global superpower.

Presented by the ‘Buzz’ Westfall Favorite Author Series.

Books will be available for purchase at the event from the Novel Neighbor. Pre-order your copy HERE!

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
