About this title


This remembering of the Tenth Army of the Pacific Theater campaign is recounted by Bob Green, then a twenty-year-old second lieutenant of the 763rd Tank Battalion attached to the 96th Infantry Division. The invasion, launched on April Fool's Day/Easter Sunday 1945, began the last major battle of World War II, fought as war in Europe ended and president Roosevelt died. Three months later, the Okinawa arena was declared secure. Bob Green's personal accounting of the war and letters home are fascinating as well as touching. His amazing recollection of events makes one feel as if it happened yesterday. The book is richly illustrated with archival photos from the U.S. Army and from the author's personal collection.

About the Author:

Bob Green is a noted Texas historian and the recipient of the Silver Star and two Bronze Stars for his service in the Pacific Theater of Operations, where he saw action in the invasions of both Leyte and Okinawa.
