Tarawa and the Marshalls by Eric Hammell

Book Description

The US Marines battle for Tarawa Atoll and the Marshall Islands included some of the fiercest, most decisive combat and battles in the Pacific Theatre - critical engagements that this book brings vividly to life, using photographs shot by soldiers at the time. This historic drama unfolds using these hundreds of rare photographs, alongside a history documenting the 2nd Marine Division's amphibious assault on Betio Island in the Tarawa atoll on November 20, 1943, the landing of the 22nd Marines on the Marshalls on February 18, and the four days of intense fighting that bought the atoll under Allied control in under four days. Not for nothing was this known as 'Bloody Tarawa', and these unique, never-before-seen photographs capture this fiercely desperate combat in uncompromising, stark images.
