Guadalcanal : The battle at Guadalcanal marked the first American offensive of World War II. It was a brutal six-month campaign that cost the lives of some 7,000 Americans and over 30,000 Japanese. This volume recounts the full story of the critical campaign for Guadalcanal and is based on first-time translations of official Japanese Defense Agency accounts and recently declassified U.S. radio intelligence. Guadalcanal recreates the battle on land, at sea, and in the air as never before. It examines the feelings of both American and Japanese soldiers, the strategies and conflicts of their commanders, and the strengths and weaknesses of various fighting units. Illustrated with over fifty photographs and thirty maps, Guadalcanal is the definitive history of one of the most fascinating military campaigns ever undertaken.
