Originally from Wisconsin, he lived in Connecticut for many years with his wife.

Reviews

"[It] is quite possibly the most readable, yet informative account of the Pacific war." --Chicago Sun-Times

"Unbelievably rich . . . readable and exciting . . . The best parts of [Toland's] book are not the battle scenes but the intimate view he gives of the highest reaches of Tokyo politics." --Newsweek

"Similar in scope to William Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Toland's book is fresh and dramatic throughout. The Rising Sun is not only a blood-and-guts action story, it also presents for the first time a great deal of fresh information." --Chicago Sun-Times
