010690-Office of Naval Intelligence-Combat Narrative Series-Solomon Island Campaign II-The Battle of Savo Island 9 August 1942 and III The Battle of the Eastern Solomons 23-24 August 1942 92 Pages1942 This is not a digital copy of a reprint. Combat Narratives were written to fill a temporary requirement before the appearance of official and semiofficial complete histories. Due to hastily gathered and oftentimes incomplete information there are certain inaccuracies. The Marines landed in the Solomons in the early morning of 7 August 1942. On Guadalcanal the Japanese, apparently, believing that only a naval raid was in prospect, retired to the hills, so that our landing was made almost without opposition. On the smaller islands, however, they could not withdraw. On Tulagi and Gavutu they offered the most desperate resistance, and on Tanambogo even succeeded in repulsing our first landing. Consequently on the evening of the 8th the Marines were still engaged in mopping up snipers or in securing their positions on these islands. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY.
