  Early reviews for RAIN OF STEEL

"Rain of Steel not only profiles some of the unknown men who fought and won the brutal final Pacific campaign in World War II, but brings to life how close we came to defeat at the hands of the relentless Japanese. The bravery, guile, and determination outlined in Stephen Moore's masterpiece insure the names and faces and gathering heroics at Okinawa will never be forgotten." Brian Kilmeade, Fox and Friends, best-selling author

"Stephen Moore adds to his already lustrous reputation by bringing to life the dramatic story of U.S. carrier aircraft battling Japanese aces in the Pacific. His reliance on aviator interviews reminds us that these were humans, not aircraft, racing into battle, and as such they grappled with every emotion as they gallantly met their foe."—John Wukovits, author of Dogfight Over Tokyo

"Context and action. These attributes, in combination with Moore's exhaustive research and excellent writing, make the history of the savage fight against Japan's suicide flyers uniquely accessible to all. Rain of Steel is a must-read for aviation fans and students of the Pacific War alike. Highly recommended."—Jay A. Stout, Lt. Col. (Ret.), author of Air Apaches
