Product Details


“Evans Carlson was not an ordinary U.S. Marine officer. He was a maverick…. In 1942, Carlson led the Long Patrol, spending 30 days behind Japanese lines on Guadalcanal, always moving, always killing and always disrupting…. [American Commando] brilliantly details Carlson’s life and career.”—San Antonio Express-News

“Wukovits [brings] events to life with skill and vibrancy. In one such passage, describing the hardships the battalion endured during its Long Patrol on Guadalcanal, the author gives one of the most vivid accounts available of men fighting and trying to survive in a tropical jungle.”—Naval History
