December, 1941. The Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor, Guam, Malaya, the Philippines. Everywhere, the Allies are on the run. Except on a tiny coral atoll in the middle of the vast Pacific, where a valiant group of Americans - Marines, sailors, soldiers, and civilians - have repulsed the first Japanese attempt to capture their isolated little outpost. But the Japanese will be back. Only the U.S. Pacific Fleet can save them - if it can get there in time. Yamamoto. Kimmel. Yamaguchi. Halsey. The race for Wake Island is on. Wake Relieved is the story of a what-if: What if the United States Pacific Fleet had tried to save Wake Island from the Japanese in December 1941 In this alternate history, Admiral Halsey's carriers head for Wake - and an early showdown with the Imperial Japanese Navy.
