Product Details


“Naval historian John Wukovits writes about the bloody Tarawa fight as though he had gone ashore with the Marines…a worthy memorial to the Marines who fought there.”—Herman Wouk

“This fast-paced chronicle of courage is a must read.”—Lt. Col. Oliver L. North

“The best book I have ever read about the battle for Tarawa….His vivid account of this horrific amphibious campaign is must reading for all Marines and World War II history buffs.”—Gunnery Sgt. Jack Coughlin, USMC (Ret.), author of Shooter: The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper

“In this remarkable book, we smell the sulfurous stink of artillery, hear the impact of bullets into flesh, and taste the bitterness of blood….We owe a debt to Wukovits for reminding us of the American heroes who gave every ounce of their strength and courage to kick open the gate to Tokyo.”—Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys
