Click to EnlargeTOUCHED With FIRE: LAND WAR in the South Pacific. Focuses on ground combat in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands from mid-1942 until early 1944--a time when the South Pacific was the focal point of the land war between Japan and U.S. The South Pacific campaign of World War II set new standards for savagery in modern warfare. The ground fighting reached a peak of intensity when the U.S. Marines landed at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands while the Australians repulsed the Japanese advance across New Guinea. Battling jungle rot and malaria, the Australian Army teamed with the U.S. against the Japanese, whose battle ethos demanded they fight until victory or extermination.

In Touched by Fire, Eric Bergerud, a professor of military and American history at Lincoln University in San Francisco, restores the campaign to its rightful place of importance as a diabolical struggle for survival in World War II's most heartless terrain.

Using hundreds of hours of interviews, Bergerud vividly portrays the lives of the regular infantrymen and Marines who struggled to contain the Japanese advance in what became a war of annihilation.
