About the Author

STERLING MACE enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1942 and was stationed at Parris Island, Camp Lejeune, the Brooklyn Naval Yard, and then finally Pavuvu, before experiencing the toughest fighting the Pacific war had to offer, as a rifleman in K/3/5, at Peleliu and later on Okinawa. He was a consultant on E.B. Sledge's book, "With the Old Breed." He lives in St. Pete Beach, Florida.NICK ALLEN is the son of a combat rifleman who served in Vietnam and has been interviewing combat veterans for most of his life. He lives in Bellaire, Texas.


"Battleground Pacific" is another great tribute to 'The Greatest Generation.' During much of the book, and especially the daily grind of combat, I found myself comparing Mace's ordeals with those of my uncle, Sgt. John Basilone, the Medal of Honor hero from Guadalcanal. Both Mace and Basilone suffered the physical and mental hardships of battle and the frustration of the seemingly endless conflict with the enemy. Mace's tale is written in the language of a grunt speaking for all the unsung heroes who lived and died in the Pacific. A good read from this Marine's perspective. Jerry Cutter, former Marine, nephew of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC, and author of the authorized biography of Basilone, I m Staying with My Boys "Battleground Pacific" is more than a book. It's a virtual minicam on a rifleman's helmet, riveting home the sights and sounds of war in a realness you expect to find only in a movie theater. Jerry Cutter, former Marine, nephew of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC, and author of the authorized biography of Basilone, I m Staying with My Boys"
