Campaign Series 18- Guadalcanal 1942: The Marines Strike Back
By Josephn. Mueller & David G. Chandler
Published by Osprey Military

This superbly illustrated volume presents one of the turning points of the Second World War- and one of the most arduous campaigns, fought in appalling humidity and dense tropical jungle. The author, US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Joe Mueller, is a recognized authority and author on the battle and has first-hand experience of the battle zone. This volume concentrates on the land fighting- including the battles of the Tenaru, ‘Bloody Ridge’, Henderson field, and the breakout battles by the Matanikau River.
The Osprey Campaign Series presents concise, authoritative accounts of the great conflicts of history. Each volume begins with an assessment of each commander’s campaign strategy, then recounts the progress of the fighting, bow-by-bow. More than 90 illustrations, including maps, charts and colour plates accompany the text, and a series of three-dimensional battle maps mark the critical stages of the campaign. Each volume concludes with a brief guide to the battlefield today, and detailed notes for wargamers.
The General Editor, David Chandler, is a former head of the Department of War Studies at Sandhurst, Britain’s Royal Military Academy, and a military historian of international renown. For the Osprey Campaign Series he has assembled a team of expert writers from both sides of the Atlantic.
