A young Army officer describes his experiences as his troopship convoy sails in January 1942 from Brooklyn to Australia, then New Caledonia. The story then moves to Guadalcanal and to combat action in the Russell Islands, New Georgia, Vella Lavella, and Bougainville Island, and finally, to the author's return to San Francisco. The author portrays life in his artillery battery and relates incidents that happened to him and others in the unit. The story is told with wit and poignancy. Edmund DuBois is a retired Regular Army officer. In addition to his World War II service in the Pacific, he had assignments in the Pentagon, with NATO, and in two command positions. He has published one novel, is about to have another published, and has co-authored a third publication.
