A Memoir of the War in the South Pacific

From Guadalcanal to the Philippines to Japan's surrender, a ground level view of some of the fiercest battles of World War II. This book is the memoir of Charles H. Walker of North Dakota who began writing the book for his family.

During World War II, enlisted in the U.S. Army, assigned to the 23rd Infantry Division "Americal Division", 164th Infantry Regiment and sent overseas to the South Pacific (SOPAC) and served on New Caledonia, Guadalcanal and the Philippines.
