From the Publisher“Battleground Pacific is another great tribute to 'The Greatest Generation.' During much of the book, and especially the daily grind of combat, I found myself comparing Mace’s ordeals with those of my uncle, Sgt. John Basilone, the Medal of Honor hero from Guadalcanal. Both Mace and Basilone suffered the physical and mental hardships of battle and the frustration of the seemingly endless conflict with the enemy. Mace’s tale is written in the language of a grunt speaking for all the unsung heroes who lived and died in the Pacific. A good read from this Marine’s perspective.”
—Jerry Cutter, former Marine, nephew of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC, and author of the authorized biography of Basilone, I’m Staying with My Boys
"Battleground Pacific is more than a book. It’s a virtual minicam on a rifleman’s helmet, riveting home the sights and sounds of war in a realness you expect to find only in a movie theater."
—Bob Welch, co-author of Easy Company Soldier: The Legendary Battles of a Sergeant from WWII's "Band of Brothers"
