THE PACIFIC---Volume One-- Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal, is the latest book from Mr. Wertz. This first volume premieres a ten part book series: War Stories: World War II Firsthand, which offers a unique approach to World War II by weaving stories of combat veterans of all forces into an event by event history of the war. The series includes hundreds of first person interviews and oral histories of the soldiers on the ground, the sailors on the high seas, and airmen in the sky. THE PACIFIC---Volume One-- Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal features heart-wrenching testimony from the survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bataan Death March and much, much more. Extensive research has resulted in finding those who are willing to share their personal, often unusual, and always fascinating wartime recollections. The book is fully illustrated with dynamic images, including color photos; and specially designed 3-D maps. Tom Brokaw of NBC News commented, "The Pacific" is a stunning and evocative reminder of the personal heroism and epic battles over and on seas, island, and mainland, as told by those who were there. Magnificent." Jay Wertz is the author of three other books -- The Native American Experience, The Civil War Experience 1861-1865, and co-author of Smithsonian's Great Battles and Battlefields of the Civil War. His television credits include the award-winning 13-part documentary series Smithsonian's Great Battles of the Civil War.
