When it comes to sheer savagery endured by the American fighting man, few combat theaters could match the Pacific in WorldWar II: the sodden malarial and Japanese infested jungles of New Guinea and Guadalcanal, the kamikaze pilots for whom death was no deterrent, and the blood-soaked beaches taken by island-hopping Marines. Here, in their own words, are the compelling stories of American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, as told to decorated combat veteran Lt. Colonel Oliver North. In War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific, North reveals: * Eyewitness testimony from Pearl Harbor veterans that Japanese Zeros did not fire the first shots: our defending forces did--with startling results * The living hell of the Bataan Death March and the daring rescue of the Ghosts of Bataan * The big battles: the Coral Sea, Midway, Guadalcanal, the Marianas, Leyte * How Americans cracked the secret Japanese JN-25 code and changed the course of the war War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific is the essential book for every veteran of the war, every student of military history, and every American who is inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the Greatest Generation in one of its greatest moments.
