Following his book on the role of the 1st Marine Division in the battle of Iwo Jima, Charles Trang has written an encyclopedic study of the Marines in the Pacific 1941-1945. Each campaign is treated in detail individually accompanied by firsthand accounts and photos, many previously unpublished. Corregidor, Wake, Midway, Guadalcanal, Makin, Bougainville, Rabaul, Tarawa, Marshall Islands, Cape Gloucester, Saipan, Tinian, Guam, Iwo Jima and Okinawa, bloody, pitiless battles where the Marines forged their reputation for tenacity, implacability and professionalism rarely equaled during the Second World War. This book looks at all the various units of the USMC, orders of battle, command structures and profiles of all the recipients of the Medal of Honor.
