A New World power facing off against an ancient empire. A desperate struggle to control a Pacific archipelago. A high-stakes campaign that would tip the balance in a fiercely contested theatre of war. On 7 August, 1942, Guadalcanal was invaded, signalling the beginning of a campa...ign which would last over six months. The American troops who stormed the Solomon Islands forced the Imperial Japanese Navy to abandon Guadalcanal in a victory which marked the first step towards Japan's eventual defeat. This colourful graphic novel follows the stories of the troops on the ground, bringing the campaign vividly to life through the eyes of the soldiers, sailors, and pilots who fought on both sides. Combining an authentic historical story with striking visuals and expert storytelling, Guadalcanal reveals a campaign that changed the course of the War in the Pacific.
