Description: This celebrated classic gives a soldier’s-eye-view of the Guadalcanal battles–crucial to World War II, the war that continues to fascinate us all, and to military history in general. Unlike some of those on Guadalcanal in the fall of 1942, Richard Tregaskis volunteered to be there. An on-location news correspondent (at the time, one of only two on Guadalcanal), he lived alongside the soldiers: sleeping on the ground–only to be awoken by air raids–eating the sometimes meager rations, and braving some of the most dangerous battlefields of World War II. He more than once narrowly escaped the enemy’s fire, and so we have this incisive and exciting inside account of the groundbreaking initial landing of U.S. troops on Guadalcanal.

With a new Introduction by Mark Bowden–renowned journalist and author of Black Hawk Down–this edition of Guadalcanal Diary makes available once more one of the most important American works of the war.
