The Ghost Mountain Boys : Their Epic March and the Terrifying Battle for New Guinea - The Forgotten War of the South Pacific by James Campbell
The winner of the 2007 RR Donnelley Literary Award by the Wisconsin Library Association for the highest literary achievement by a Wisconsin author, Ghost Mountain Boys relates the heroic exploits of the storied 32nd "Red Arrow" Division's battles on the mud slicked mountains and mosquito infested swamps of New Guinea during WWII. Primarily comprised of soldiers from Wisconsin and Michigan, the 32nd Division overcame hellacious terrain and a determined Japanese army to obtain victory despite ongoing supply problems and a sometimes overeager General MacArthur. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this long overdue story highlights another piece of Wisconsin's proud military tradition. Check catalog for availability.
