Promotional Information

The bitter six-month struggle for control of Guadalcanal in the South Pacific matched the US Marine Corps against the Imperial Japanese Army in a campaign that would test both sides to the limit. In this book the realities of prolonged warfare in an unforgiving environment are documented in photographs, specially commissioned artwork, official reports, and first-hand accounts, offering a glimpse of close-quarter infantry combat in World War II's Pacific Theater.
