Guadalcanal Diary by Richard Tregaskis

Guadalcanal Diary

by Richard Tregaskis


Title Details

Running Time
8 Hrs. 59 Min.


This celebrated classic gives a soldier's-eye-view of the Guadalcanal battles; crucial to World War II, the war that continues to fascinate us all. Unlike some of those on Guadalcanal in the fall of 1942, Richard Tregaskis volunteered to be there. One of only two on-location news correspondents, he lived alongside the soldiers: sleeping on the ground - only to be awoken by air raids - eating meager rations, and braving some of the most dangerous battlefields of World War II. He more than once narrowly escaped the enemy's fire, and so we have this incisive and exciting inside account of the groundbreaking initial landing of US troops on Guadalcanal. This second edition features a new introduction by Mark Bowden, renowned journalist and author of Black Hawk Down.
