GREEN HELL: The Battle For Guadalcanal, by William J. Owens. This is the complete story of the Battle for Guadalcanal. Not just the land combat, as the name "Green Hell" suggest, but the bitter and savage naval battles of Savo and Tassafaronga as well. Ashore, "Green Hell" described the reeking, rotting, and malaria-infested jungle that sapped every Marine and soldier's strength. At Guadalcanal, extraordinary heroism was an ordinary thing, and author Owens has created an important book about it. After you read this, you will never want to travel to Guadalcanal, but you will never forget it. Softcover, 276 pages.
