Overview

Half a century after his death, Max Brand remains one of the most popular writers of Westerns. But only now has his one non-fiction work become available: a stirring account of the 212th Marine Fighter Squadron's operations at Guadalcanal in 1942. This trove of personal and historical detail arose from hundreds of hours of interviews with the flyers and ground crew caught in harm's way. The thrilling stories of air-to-air combat are recounted in the words of the men who were there -- men distinguished by their resolve to defeat the apparently invincible Japanese. This work was lost when Max Brand was killed in 1944 covering the Italian campaign for Harper's magazine, FIGHTER SQUADRON AT GUADALCANAL is a unique and important account that deserves a place among the classics of World War II literature.
