Always the campaign I point to when people think they invented "Joint" in 1987.

Also, my old man was all over these areas with Barbey's VII Amphib Force.


This is a great book, by the way, though it's about a later period.

I always like hearing about the SW Pacific and the CBI. Much like the Italian campaign after Anzio, I feel like most histories omit a lot. Seems like it goes from Guadalcanal to the Philippines without mentioning anything in the SW Pacific and all we ever get about the CBI is some blurb about the Chindits.
