The campaign for Guadalcanal is an in-depth account of the crucial struggle that marked the turning point of World War II in the Pacific. Fought over a six-month period on and around an island few had ever heard of, and certainly one which neither the Japanese nor American high commands would have chosen for a battle ground, it included see-sawing encounters on land, vicious flighting in the air, and a series of the most deadly naval actions of modern times. Before it was over upwards of 26,000 men died there, and the many rusting hulls of sunken ships gave the once peaceful waters off the landing beaches a new name -- Ironbottom Sound.
