Very nice! Profusely photo-illustrated with both black-and-white and color photos. Truly an outstanding book about its subject in every way. From the Foreword by Donald Blackburn, Brig. Gen. (Ret.) of the US Army: "From a balcony in the Philippines, where the pains of defeat had become a reality, the unfolding events in the South Pacific Theatre of War were both reassuring and bolstering to those who, after the surrender of Bataan and Corregidor, continued to fight and resist the enemy's occupation of the Islands. RUST IN PEACE is a poignant testimonial to the tremendous sacrifices of determined peoples in halting the tidal wave of Japanese forces which swiftly engulfed vast areas of the South Pacific yet with human and material resources strained to the limits of endurance, they reversed the tide which ordained the defeat of Japan. Bruce Adams's remarkable photographic epic is a vivid recording of both the horrors of war and the resilience of people in peace. The derelicts and artifacts are stark reminders of the war. The recent scenes of the islands, their peoples and environs evidence how rapidly nature heals the scars of destruction, and people purge prejudices of the past to progress the future. This pictorial recall of the tragic years of war will stimulate nostalgic reflections by many service personnel and civilians who were confronted with the anxieties of those crucial years. The skillful composition of scenes against backdrops of beauty and serenity causes circumvention of reality to more pleasant and memorable fantasies of their sacrifices in the restoration of peace and their cherished ways of life.".
