Editorial Reviews

Pacific Stars And Stripes - Andrew Snavel
This book is exceptional in that for the first time since World War II it gives the story of the fighting in the Pacific from the standpoint of espionage agents and saboteurs whose reports and actions helped greatly to defeat the Japanese.
Wichita Falls Times - Kelly Kuyper
The incredible struggle for survival, the heroism, successes and tragedies of these little known men, and the decisive effectiveness of their work in the winning of the war make up an enthralling book.

Meet the Author

While not literally born on the battlefield, Daniel MacArthur was definitely raised on it. With a proud family connection to the famous General Douglas MacArthur, Daniel’s version of childhood bedtime stories centered not around knights and dragons, but on tales of heroic soldiers and island hoppers.

Never shaking his love for military history, Daniel decided to take a year off from his sales job in 1992 to travel the world and visit some of the most famous battle sites, including Iwo Jima and Ardennes. That year off soon became two years, and then three, and eventually a lifetime as Daniel’s journal of his trip transformed into his first book, “Where They Stood: The Hallowed Grounds of a World War.”

In the decades that have followed, Daniel has become one of the foremost experts on early 20th century warfare, with works covering the Pacific and European fronts of World War II, as well as World War I. He also writes a weekly history column for the Williamsburg Gazette which has gained quite a bit of local notoriety by recounting the battle stories of the wars’ veterans who hail from the town and surrounding areas.
