Resumen:

With Into the Rising Sun, O'Donnell tells the story of the brutal Pacific War, based on hundreds of interviews spanning a decade. Over the course of the war, Marines, paratroopers, and rangers spearheaded D-Day-sized beach assaults, encountered cannibalism, suffered friendly-fire incidents, and endured torture as prisoners of war. As one soldier put it, "When somebody gets decorated, it's because a lot of other men died." By at last telling their stories, these men present a look at the war on the ground. Together with detailed maps of each battle, Into the Rising Sun offers a personal account of the war in the Pacific, and a ground-level view of some of history's most brutal combat.
