- Full Description
Award winning comic writer and artist Wayne Vansant brings his gripping World War II saga of war in the Pacific to Guadalcanal and the Battle of Bloody Ridge. This is the powerful story of the long, vicious battle for Guadalcanal that occurred in 1942-43. When the U.S. Navy orders its outnumbered and outgunned ships to run from the Japanese fleet, they abandon American troops on a bloody, battered island in the South Pacific and the men left on Guadalcanal find out that there will be no prisoners taken on either side.
It is a kill or be killed battlefield as the stranded U.S. Marines fight against overwhelming odds and hope for reinforcements before it’s too late. As the events unfold, a U.S. Marine unit is deployed onto a small grassy hill to hold off the onslaught of Japanese assault troops. The three-day, three-night battle that ensues will go down in history as the Battle of Bloody Ridge.
