Praise for Guadalcanal

"Brilliant . . . an enormous work based on the most meticulous research. Here is everything you might want to know about Guadalcanal."                
Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Richard Frank has produced what will surely become the standard history of the U.S. Navy’s most important campaign. . . . A stunning debut by a major new talent in American letters."  
–Tom Clancy

"Guadalcanal is a masterly account of what happened and why. . . . Books of this quality are rare, and Richard B. Frank should be commended for his authoritative  inaugural work."                                                                          
Chicago Tribune

"Mr. Frank’s book is impressive in virtually all respects–a vividly and carefully crafted monument that is worthy of the Americans and Japanese who collided . . . on a little-known island named Guadalcanal."
The New York Times Book Review
