PACIFIC ALAMO - The Battle for the Wake Island. Remember Wake Island...The first complete account of the WWII battle-including interviews with survivors and 16 pages of photographs + maps.

Click to EnlargePACIFIC ALAMO - The Battle for the Wake Island. John Wukovits - Author. It happened in the shadow of Pearl Harbor-mere hours after the first attack on the day that would "live in infamy." But few know the full story of Wake Island.

Now a prominent military historian, breaking new ground on the assault, relates the compelling events of that day and the heroic struggle that followed. Thanks to the brave Marines stationed there-and the civilian construction workers who selflessly put their lives on the line to defend the island-what was supposed to be an easy victory became a protracted and costly battle for Imperial Japan. This is the story of the battle, from survivors on both sides, and with a gallery of historic photos.
