Synopsis: When it comes to sheer savagery endured by the American fighting man, few combat theaters could match the Pacific in WorldWar II: the sodden malarial and Japanese infested jungles of New Guinea and Guadalcanal, the kamikaze pilots for whom death was no deterrent, and the blood-soaked beaches taken by island-hopping Marines. Here, in their own words, are the compelling stories of American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, as told to decorated combat veteran Lt. Colonel Oliver North.

In War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific, North reveals:


  • Eyewitness testimony from Pearl Harbor veterans that Japanese Zeros did not fire the first shots: our defending forces did—with startling results
  • The living hell of the Bataan Death March and the daring rescue of the Ghosts of Bataan
  • The big battles: the Coral Sea, Midway, Guadalcanal, the Marianas, Leyte
  • How Americans cracked the secret Japanese JN-25 code and changed the course of the war

War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific is the essential book for every veteran of the war, every student of military history, and every American who is inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the Greatest Generation in one of its greatest moments.

From the Inside Flap: "Another Marine reporting for duty, sir. I’ve spent my time in Hell."—A World War II Marine to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates When it comes to sheer savagery endured by the American fighting man, few combat theaters could match the Pacific in World War II: the sodden malarial and Japanese-infested jungles of Guadalcanal and Tarawa, the kamikaze pilots for whom death was no deterrent, and the blood-soaked beaches taken by island-hopping Marines. Here, in their own words, as told to decorated combat veteran Lt. Colonel Oliver North, are the compelling, personal stories of American veterans—soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines—about what it was really like to fight in the Pacific.

In War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific, you’ll experience the fierce combat at Bougainville, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa; you’ll fly into flak with the fabled Flying Tigers and the Black Sheep Squadron of Pappy Boyington; and you’ll come face-to-face with the enemy, as North interviews the Japanese veterans who fought so tenaciously against us. In War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific, North reveals:
· The secret plan behind Japan’s belief that it could defeat the United States
· Eyewitness testimony from Pearl Harbor veterans that Japanese Zeros did not fire the first shots: Our defending forces did—with startling results
· The living hell of the Bataan Death March and the daring rescue of the Ghosts of Bataan
· The "impossible" mission of the daring Doolittle Raid
· MacArthur’s dramatic and emotional return to the Philippines
· The Big Battles: the Coral Sea, Midway, Guadalcanal, the Marianas, Leyte
· The forgotten China-Burma-India Theater
· How Americans cracked the secret Japanese JN-25 code and changed the course of the war War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific is the essential book for every veteran of the war, every student of military history, and every American who is inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the Greatest Generation in one of its greatest moments.
