This work compares the US Marines, with their reputation for toughness, against the Japanese Infantryman who did as directed, in the battle for Guadalcanal Island. The author compares weapons, training equipment and outlook to war from the point of view of both sides.
War in the Pacific was a harsh unforgiving theatre of operations and in the end it was the Americans, with their better logistics and superior firepower, backed by weight of supplies, which forced the Japanese back one island after another. Through first-hand accounts, detailed maps and assessments the author delivers a solid read for all interests.
