Tales of the South Pacific - Michener's first book is truly a gem. Compiled from articles he wrote for the Navy newspaper while serving in the South Pacific, he earned his first Pulitzer. RKO Films was quick to buy the rights thinking it would make a great movie. John Wayne and the Sands of Iwo Jimo played a hand in RKO never producing the film. Not to be deterred, Michener sold the stage rights to a Broadway producer who promptly developed the timeless musical South Pacific.
If you are a student of the war in the Pacific, Tales of the South Pacific should be one of your first, must reads.
