A historical discourse on the Battle for Guadacanal. The Marines and soldiers were left standed on the beach without supplies or support when the American navy was forced to withdraw due to a threat from the Japanese navy. The first major battle following Pearl Harbor.

An excellent look at the land/air/sea campaign in which America won its spus and learned to fight the Imperial Japanese Navy, Air Force, and Army.
