Between America's retreat from China in late November 1941 and the moment General MacArthur's airplane touched down on the Japanese mainland in August of 1945, five men connected by happenstance led the fight in key battles in the war against Japan. From the miracle at Midway to the Guadalcanal, their solemn oaths led them to the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot and to Iwo Jima and Okinawa, until at last the survivors enjoyed a triumphant, yet uneasy, return home.
