One Damned Island After Another - The Saga of the Seventh
Publisher: Thunderbolt Books
Clive Howard and Joe Whitley were both sergeants and served as correspondents for the Seventh Air Force during World War 2. The men of the Seventh were forced to fly the longest missions in any theater of war, entirely over water and, at first, without fighter escort. They fought at Midway, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Kwajalein, Eniwetok, Truk, Saipan, Palau, the Philippines, Iwo Jima, and finally Tokyo.
One Damned Island After Another covers the history of this remarkable air force from the events at Pearl Harbor through to V-J Day, detailing events on every single island that the force landed on in between.
This new 2019 edition of One Damned Island After Another includes annotations and photographs from the Pacific campaigns.
