ID: 14114561214

[EAN: 9780786712250], [PU: Carroll & Graf], History|Military|World War II, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: A riveting reconstruction of the devastating battle for Wake Island and its grim aftermath in the words of sixty-eight servicemen who traveled to hell and back This gritty oral chronicle records with poignant and often disturbing immediacy both the bloody sixteen-day Battle of Wake Island and the forty-four months of hell that followed it. One of the first military engagements in World War II, the battle for this tiny, strategically located atoll in the Pacific began on December 8, 1941, just five hours after Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. It ended on December 23, when the marines--despite diminished forces, incapacitated fighter planes, and no communications--strove to stem an overwhelming Japanese invasion until their commanding officers ordered them to surrender. The worst had only just begun. No sooner had the surviving marines--the author's eighteen-year-old brother among them--laid down their arms than they were stripped and bound. For two days they sat naked in the hot sun; at night they shivered in the cold. For the next three weeks they slogged in the ruins of their bombed-out camp. They were then jammed into the hold of the ship that would take them to prison camps in China and Japan, where they would endure the cruelest indignities and grimmest tortures their captors could devise until their liberation in August 1945. Hell Wouldn't Stop tells their often horrific, frequently heroic, and unforgettable if long-forgotten World War II story.
