This is the story of thousands of Melanesian, Australian, New Zealand, Japanese and American men who fought for a poor insignificant island in a faraway corner of the South Pacific Ocean. For the men who participated, the real battle was of man against jungle. This is the account of land, sea and air units covering the entire six-month battle-stories of ordinary privates and seamen, admirals and generals, who survived to claim the victory that was the turning point of the war in the Pacific.
