No Bended Knee: The Battle for Guadalcanal
The Memoir of Gen. Merrill B. Twining USMC Ret
The Battle of Guadalcanal is one of the authentically epical conflicts of World War II. Twining saw it as operations officer of the key U.S. ground unit, the First Marine Division. What he saw and now recounts was a campaign in which a semitrained and understrength division was flung into battle and somehow not only survived, but prevailed. Those marines had to fight the Japanese, the jungle, tropical diseases, uncertain supplies, inept commanders (some of them even members of Twining's beloved marines), and a host of other adversaries. They overcame them all.
