"It is December 1941. The devastation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor leaves behind the most humiliating defeat America has ever suffered. But one Pacific island holds on. the world holds its breath and watches as a tiny band of marines miraculously beats back massive enemy invasions by air, land and sea. From jungle to lagoon, beach to foxhole, they would fight in a terrifying inferno of machine gun bullets, blood and sand - surviving on guts and determination alone. Here is the incredible saga of heroism that enabled Americans once again to stand tall in those grim, dark days."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
