Re: X-Post: MiWSR: Smither on Wheelan, "Midnight in the Pacific: Guadalcanal: The World War II Battle That Turned the Tide of War"

Guadalcanal was a campaign, not a battle.

Other than that I hope this new work removes more tired myths than it perpetuates.

The author and reviewer also seem unaware of the vast oral history resources still to be plumbed out there, many of which D.M. Giangreco and I used in _Eyewitness Pacific Theater_ (Sterling 2008). But it takes work to find them, read them, and organize the information.

Vr, John
