The Solomons Campaigns, 1942-1943: From Guadalcanal to Bougainville, Pacific War Turning Point (Amphibious Operations in the South Pacific in WWII)
The Solomons Campaigns, 1942-1943: From Guadalcanal to Bougainville,
WINNER OF THE MILITARY WRITERS SOCIETY OF AMERICA 2018 SILVER MEDAL! On 7 August 1942, eight months to the day after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. 1st Marine Division landed on Tulagi and Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. This was the beginning of the brutal six month Battle for Guadalcanal. Under one cover, military historian William L. McGee details all the campaigns fought in the Solomon Islands - from Guadalcanal to Bougainville - and sums up the valuable lessons learned."As a Marine who landed on Guadalcanal on 7 August 1942, Bill McGee's THE SOLOMONS CAMPAIGNS, 1942-1943 is the most comprehensive book I've read on the subject. It covers all the campaigns -- Southern, Central and Northern -- and brings back memories of those very dark days. Semper Fi."- William J. Carroll, President, Guadalcanal Campaign Veterans"Enough gripping drama, heroism, and heartbreak in McGee's almost encyclopedic THE SOLOMONS CAMPAIGNS to supply Hollywood with material for a century."- Marine Corps League Magazine"The result is a masterpiece."- Leatherneck, Magazine of the Marines■ Part I, The Southern Solomons - Covers the bloody six-month struggle for Guadalcanal. The relationship between ground fighting, naval warfare, and air combat is described in considerable de...

The U.s. Navy's "Interim" LSM(R)s in World War II: Rocket Ships of the Pacific Amphibious Forces
The U.s. Navy's "Interim" LSM(R)s in World War
The "Interim" LSM(R) or Landing Ship, Medium (Rocket) was a revolutionary development in rocket warfare in World War II and the U.S. Navy's first true rocket ship. An entirely new class of commissioned warship and the forerunners of today's missile-firing naval combatants, these ships began as improvised conversions of conventional amphibious landing craft in South Carolina's Charleston Navy Yard during late 1944. They were rushed to the Pacific Theatre to support the U.S. Army and Marines with heavy rocket bombardments that devastated Japanese forces on Okinawa in 1945. Their primary mission was to deliver maximum firepower to enemy targets ashore. Yet LSM(R)s also repulsed explosive Japanese speed boats, rescued crippled warships, recovered hundreds of survivors at sea and were deployed as antisubmarine hunter-killers. Casualties were staggering: enemy gunfire blasted one, while kamikaze attacks sank three, crippled a fourth and grazed two more. This book provides a comprehensive operational history of the Navy's 12 original "Interim" LSM(R)s.

American Amphibious Gunboats in World War II: A History of LCI and LCS(L) Ships in the Pacific
American Amphibious Gunboats in World War II: A
As the United States began its campaign against numerous Japanese-held islands in the Pacific, Japanese tactics required them to develop new weapons and strategies. One of the most crucial to the island assaults was a new group of amphibious gunboats that could deliver heavy fire close in to shore as American forces landed. These gunboats were also to prove important in the interdiction of inter-island barge traffic and, late in the war, the kamikaze threat. Several variations of these gunboats were developed, based on the troop carrying LCI(L). They included three conversions of the LCI(L), with various combinations of guns, rockets and mortars, and a fourth gunboat, the LCS(L), based on the same hull but designed as a weapons platform from the beginning. By the end of the war the amphibious gunboats had proven their worth.
