Details: Product Description A brilliant history of the land battles in the Pacific theater of World War II, with stirring personal accounts of the horrifying struggle between the Japanese and Allied forces.   The horrors of WWII in the South Pacific extended far beyond the detonation of atomic bombs. In this revelatory portrayal of the lives of the regular infantrymen who struggled to contain the Japanese advance, Eric Bergerud has given us a compelling and chilling record of the incredible hardships endured by these soldiers, and the heroic efforts that resulted in the reversal of the course of the war. Bergerud spent hundreds of hours interviewing the last surviving veterans of this remarkable campaign, and he has placed their personal experiences at the center of his analysis of military strategy.   “Aspires to do for the ground war in the South Pacific what Keegan achieved in Six Armies in Normandy.”— Los Angeles Times About the Author Eric M. Bergerud is an author and professor of military and American history at Lincoln University in San Francisco. His works include Red Thunder Tropic Lightning and Touched with Fire.
