KIRKUS REVIEW

The U. S. Marine invasion of Guadalcanal, perhaps the most courageous campaign of World War II, is all here in a devastating, jam-packed documentary done with narrative style and sweep. Based on Marine monographs. Army histories and Samuel Eliot Morison's volumes, Strong Men Armed in flooded with personal details of battalions in combat as well as every major aspect of an epic engagement. A work easily the peer of But Not in Shame and The Longest Day, this is a sound and dynamic testimonial.
