***** EVENT CANCELLED ***** Publishers Weekly says "In this follow-up to his late father's Band of Brothers, which tracked a single army unit from Georgia to the battlefields of Europe, historian Hugh Ambrose turns his attention to the Pacific theater, following four individual marines and one Naval Aviator through their time in combat....Ambrose also reveals how, at the time, many marines expressed contempt for Gen. MacArthur, receiving accolades back home while they made halting, bloody progress across such islands as Guadalcanal, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Doing for the war against Japan what Band of Brothers did for the war against Germany, Ambrose's history effectively immerses readers in the Good War's second front". Free and open to the public.
