December 7, 1941"A day that will live in infamy," is how President Franklin Delano Roosevelt described the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Joe and Dale are only supposed to advise their British allies, but before long, Dale is manning a tank to help stem the tide of battle, and Joe is working directly with British intelligence in Cairo.Upon entering World War II, Americans fought to defend freedom around the world. Through the eyes of those in battle, we share their struggles and hardships in this memorable story of Americans at war.

I have to admit, I read this first before the first book. I didn't know there was a first book - So please, get all three of Mr. Reasoner's "The Last Good War" Series. Battle Lines, Trial By Fire and then Zero Hour. This follows a group of friends from Before WWII thru the early years. I am hoping there is a book 4 in the works.
So well written with enough details for realism, but not so many that us amateurs get lost in the technicalities!
LOVE all 3....

The book begins with a Marine on Wake Island. First time I've read that.

Unfortunately, that's the only 4 star part; the rest of it is OK,but somewhat pedestrian.

The book is fine if you just want a piece of WWII fiction, but will not be on your all time top 100 list.

Excellent Historical Novel - Early US involvement in WWII

This is not a great book although it can be used as a great illustration as to "you should always write about what you know best." In this case, I find it difficult to believe the author knows a thing of combat, World War II, history in general, making love or story telling. The story line is weak. The dialog is corny and the book is quite poorly researched. Even the "cussing" is forced and complete gratuitous - I doubt if the author ever listened to a GI talk. The book reads much like a Harlequin, a poorly written one at that. I would suggest the author stick to his empty Westerns. I cannot actually make enough negative comments to show my complete dislike and distain for this work. Jacket and in-book synopsis are quite misleading. I do wish I could give this one a less than one star rating.

I have to wonder if the reviewer from Publishers Weekly even read this book and its predecessor. I found both Trial by Fire and Battle Lines to be wonderful stories filled with great characters. The combat action is Trial by Fire is especially compelling, and the long opening sequence concerning the Marines' gallant but doomed defense of Wake Island is some of the best war fiction I've ever read. If you're interested in good World War II fiction or just plain good storytelling, you can't go wrong with this series.
It reads at about an 8th grade level. The characters are weak; the dialogue weak; the color and tone even weaker. Historical details are not even very good.
If you want good historical fiction on the era, pick up Herman Wouk instead.
