A collection of poems from World War II, primarily focusing on the war in the South Pacific and, in particular, the Solomon Islands Campaign. The poems were collected by William C. Livingood while he was a Flight Surgeon assigned to the U. S. Marine Corps fighter squadron, VMF-213, also known as the Hell Hawks. Many of the poems were written by a VMF-213 pilot, Theron Hart Brown, III. Another poem was written the famuos journalist, Frank McCulloch, as a marine, prior to starting his carreer after the war as a investigative reporter. A number of the poems are anonymous. Context for the poems is provided in an Introduction and in individual commentary after the poems. Best efforts were made in attributing authorship of each poem.
