Includes the Island War In The Pacific Illustration Pack - 152 maps, plans and photos. Pulitzer Prize winning author Ira Wolfert provides a gripping eye-witness account of one of the pivotal campaigns of the Second World War. The campaign to liberate the Solomon islands from Japanese domination, which had crept sloe to cutting off Australia and New Zealand, was hugely important in regaining the initiative for the Allies in the Pacific. The action in this account is centered around the legendary fighting on Guadalcanal, in the air, on the sea and on the land. The author toured the area recording the thoughts, feelings and anecdotes of the American Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen who fought this brutal but successful campaign. Weaving all of these parts into a narrative of vivid clarity he captured the spirit of the "Greatest Generation" as they faced their most implacable enemy, the forces of Imperial Japan.
