The Ghost Mountain Boys: Their Epic March and the Terrifying Battle for New Guinea--The Forgotten War of the South Pacific
The Ghost Mountain Boys: Their Epic March and the Terrifying Battle for New Guinea--The Forgotten War of the South Pacific
by James Campbell
A harrowing portrait of a largely forgotten campaign that pushed one battalion to the limits of human suffering.

Despite their lack of jungle training, the 32nd Division’s “Ghost Mountain Boys” were assigned the most grueling mission of the entire Pacific campaign in World War II: to march over the 10,000-foot Owen Stanley Mountains to protect the right flank of the Australian army during the battle for New Guinea. Reminiscent of the classics like Band of Brothers and The Things They Carried, The Ghost Mountain Boys is part war diary, part extreme-adventure tale, and—through letters, journals, and interviews—part biography of a group of men who fought to survive in an environment every bit as fierce as the enemy they faced. Theirs is one of the great untold stories of the war.

The Siege of Rabaul
by Henry Sakaida
Book Description:
Rabaul, on New Britain Island, was the cornerstone of Japanese power in the Southwest Pacific island campaign. It was eventually reduced by Allied airpower and then isolated and left to wither. Matching Japanese diaries and interviews with similar material from the Allies, Sakaida records the final epic air battles of early 1944, which broke the back of Rabaul's aerial might. Sakaida also details the ordeal of the abandoned Japanese units and their ingenious efforts to keep a guerrilla air force operating until the end of the war in 1945. Many rare photos from Japanese and American sources vividly depict battle conditions, detail encounters with Allied adversaries, and provide perspectives from both sides.
