Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615779956, Paperback)The founder of modern archeology in Alabama, David DeJarnette was also an extraordinarily talented photographer and an eyewitness to World War II in the Pacific. During the last two years of the war, he served as a Coast Artillery officer in New Guinea and the Philippines, and in his spare time he created a one-of-a-kind visual record of his experiences. In the Pacific reproduces more a than a hundred of DeJarnette?s photographs taken in 1944 and 1945, along with his wartime journal and a sampling of his prewar photographs of the Alabama Gulf region. This book offers stunning images of the island cultures that DeJanette encountered as a soldier, as well as the wreckage of war and key historical moments, such as the Yamashita war crimes trial, which the archeologist personally witnessed. David DeJarnette (1907-1991) established the first archeology field school at the University of Alabama and served from 1960 until 1977 as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Alabama Archaeology.
