• The whole story of one of the deadliest battles of WWII told for
the first time
• Important contribution to the historical record
Twining provides one of the best accounts of the costly campaign that enabled Allied forces to wrest Guadalcanal from the Japanese in World War II's Pacific Theatre. Though outgunned and outmanned on the ground, the embattled Marines maintained the initiative, annihilating their foes in fierce clashes relived in this vivid narrative.
Twining is a master storyteller who squares the record about the 1st Marines Division's momentous participation in one of the bloodiest and difficult campaigns of the Second World War.
