An in-depth but highly engaging exploration of US & Allied naval air combat through the Guadalcanal Campaign the first long term engagement of Japanese & predominantly US forces in the Pacific Theatre. Tying in the wider naval war outside of carrier operations the coast watchers scattered through the Solomon Islands the Marine's war on Guadalcanal the supporting elements of wider island chains and the combat experiences of pilots from both sides this is a compelling historical work documenting the critical see-sawing battle for supremacy between highly experienced & efficient Japanese combat forces & relatively fresh Allied forces still reeling from the crushing attack on Pearl Harbour despite successes at Midway & the Coral Sea.

A lot has been written about the U-Boat war in the Atlantic however the critical air campaign against the German raiders at their source as they transited in and out of the Bay of Biscay in 1943 is essential to understanding the wider naval war.
Flying a mixture of bombers & flying boats out of Southern England Allied aircrews faced heavy resistance from German defenders out of Southern France as well as the complexity of the 'neutral' Spanish coastline & fisherman.
Incorporating memoirs & interviews of Allied aircrew who participated in the campaign this is an intriguing tactical & strategic corner of the war which impacted significantly on wider developments as WWII progressed.

One of the most viscerally intense books I have read about WW2 or any war! Sledge give the straight dope. Combat described in all it's exquisitely gruesome detail. Presenting the often forgotten minutiae of war such as going to the toilet under heavy shell fire slinging your own ammunition and living amongst filth gore & vermin all in extremes of weather and human endurance. Nothing here but the brutal stripped down reality of war against the Japanese in the Pacific campaign.

The ridge and the river.
Author: Hungerford, T. A. G. (Thomas Arthur Guy), 1915-
Publisher: Sydney : Angus & Robertson, 1952.

Empathetic immersive & powerful. Hungerford's historical fiction written based on his WWII experiences is authoritative & authentic. This book and his later work 'The Sowers of the Wind' are both works of great depth with an eye for social issues as well as giving an intense feel of the time & place. I would suggest his works for anyone interested in the experiences of Australian soldiers in the Pacific War as well as the post-war occupation of Japan.

Reynolds starts an absolutely brilliant trilogy in fine form with this book. Focussed on a future where humanity has colonised the greater part of our solar system and discovered mysteries which will lead us into deeper space and where evidence of non-human intelligence lies in wait. This book may be read as a stand alone novel for anyone daunted by the trilogy but this story is addictive!
