Description
In what may be the last memoir to be published by a living veteran of the 1942 invasion of Guadalcanal, former Marine rifle squad leader Jim McEnery and the author of Brotherhood of Heroes create a vivid, brutally candid account of life and death on the front lines of the Pacific War. McEnery's rifle company—the legendary K/3/5 of the First Marine Division, celebrated in the HBO miniseries The Pacific—fought in some of the most ferocious battles of the war, including Guadalcanal, where American forces first turned the tide against the Japanese; Cape Gloucester, where 1300 Marines were killed or wounded; and Peleliu, where McEnery assumed command of his company and hastened the defeat of the Japanese defenders after weeks of cave-to-cave fighting. From bayonet charges and hand-to-hand combat to midnight banzai attacks and the loss of close comrades, McEnery chronicles his odyssey from boot camp through two years and four months of hellish combat, until his eventual return home.

"A thoroughly satisfying account of war in the South Pacific packed with fireworks, tragedy and horseplay."—Kirkus Reviews
