Let's face it. Everyone knows Midway, right? No, not the video game company. The battle in 1942 during which the Japanese Navy broke its back. The one where Nimitz and Spruance beat Nagumo and Yamamoto.

Many people know the campaign of Guadalcanal too, the follow-up for Midway, which proved to be even more pivotal for the war in the Pacific. They may know Alexander Vandegriff, the Marine commander's name. But the man who wrote this compact and yet very satisfying book on it should be better known
From someone who was there from the start and doesn't pull punches.
