William H. Bartsch, a former United Nations development economist and independent consultant now exclusively researching and writing on the Pacific War, lives in Reston, Virginia, USA. He is the author of three previous books published by Texas A&M University Press: Doomed at the Start: American Pursuit Pilots on the Philippines, 1941-1942, December 8, 1941: MacArthur's Pearl Harbor, and Every Day a Nightmare: American Pursuit Pilots in the Defense of Java, 1941-1942.
"Dr. Bartsch's detailed account of the Battle of Tenaru sheds new insight into the actions of Americans and Japanese fighting for control over the island of Guadalcanal in 1942. His exciting description of the battle will certainly prove interesting for World War II enthusiasts."--Lieutenant Colonel Robert S. Burrell, U.S. Marine Corps--Lieutenant Colonel Robert S. Burrell, U.S. Marine Corps "The author is a seasoned researcher and writer and it is clear that this is an extensively researched and carefully written labor of love. . .weaving the eyewitness accounts and official records into a most illuminating work. He has uncovered material in quantity that cannot be read or even inferred in other standard works about the Guadalcanal Campaign. Amazing research and an eye for integrating first-person material into an excellent tale."--Kenneth W. Estes--Kenneth W. Estes (09/28/2013)
