Midnight in the Pacific: Guadalcanal

Joseph Wheelan

The first US offensive of World War II began with no fanfare early on August 7, 1942. But, before it ended six months later with the first US land victory, Guadalcanal was a household name. There, Marines faced bloody banzai attacks in the stifling malarial jungles while the US sailors and pilots battled Japanese air and sea armadas day and night. The all-in battles consumed thousands of men, hundreds of planes, and dozens of warships--and stopped the Japanese Juggernaut. Guadalcanal was the Pacific War's turning point.

Published on the 75th anniversary of the battle, Midnight in the Pacific is both a sweeping narrative and a compelling drama of individual Marines, soldiers, and sailors caught in the crosshairs of history.
