v2.0.0 / TOC (5 chapters) / 01 may 13 / greg goebel / public domain

* In 1942, less than a year after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, the United States conducted its first major amphibious combat oepration of the war, on an obscure island named Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands chain. The battle for Guadalcanal was desperate and clumsy, with bloody blunders on both sides. The Allies did prevail, and then began a drive up the far-flung Solomons to pry loose the Japanese hold on the South Pacific. This document provides a history of the battle for Guadalcanal.
