9780312873479: Zero Hour: The Last Good War Book III

November, 1942. In the Pacific with the U.S. Marines on Guadalcanal, and in North Africa with the British Armored Tank Command, James Reasoner puts readers into the thick of the most deadly action of World War II. The British Tank Command has been fighting an uphill battle with Rommel's Panzers. Brothers Joe and Dale Parker, detailed from the U.S. Army to help the British tankers, find themselves helping to turn the tide against the Desert Fox. Meanwhile, their friend Adam Bergman is in the Solomon Islands with the marines, as the U.S. starts the bloody fight to reclaim the Pacific.

Reasoner takes us into the heart of the fight in both theaters of war, and to wartime struggles on the home front, and in hospitals on ships and in temporary quarters near the fronts. The immediacy of his prose and the urgency of his story convey a passion and conviction that will stir the blood of anyone who cares about freedom and wants to understand its price.

From the Inside Flap:

"James Reasoner knows his history, but more than that, he knows people, and he makes his characters so real and so appealing that we have no choice but to sweat out every tense, exciting second with them, hoping they'll survive the war." --W.E.B. Griffin, author of the best-selling series Brotherhood of War

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Last Good War series of WWII novels by James Reasoner:

"Reasoner puts us under the guns and in the beds of World War Two. I don't know when I've read a novel that paints the era more accurately. If Audie Murphy had been a marine, he might've written Trial by Fire."-Dean Ing

"Reasoner has written a sure winner with Battle Lines. In many ways, Battle Lines reminded me very strongly of Herman Wouk's War and Remembrance opus. Believable people, doing believable things in an unbelievable but very real times, making for one hell of a read. Thanks!" --David Hagberg

"The author's treatment of such big issues as love, duty, and racism is intelligent and compassionate."--Booklist

"Battle Lines is a novel that may be enjoyed on two levels: as a compelling depiction of America's armed forces scrambling to prepare for World War II, and as a multi-faceted portrayal of young men and women, living the defining period of their lives. In either case, it's a well conceived story bolstered by a thoughtful plot and conscientious research."--Barrett Tillman
