The Man on the Ground: Who Really Wins Our Wars?

ByAllan Callow

As a medical officer serving in the US Navy during World War II, Allan Callow witnessed the horrors of war firsthand. Now, in this personal account, he presents a hard-hitting combat story of how the American military battled enemy forces in the Pacific theatre. In this account, Callow examines how infantry units and explosives played a role in the war and how amphibious storm landings in the Pacific hurt the enemy. He also recalls the invasions of Tarawa and Iwo Jima by American military forces. Callow’s descriptions of the battles, violence, and lives lost demonstrate the sacrifice of American troops and make a compelling case that the world should wage peace instead of war. Whether you are a student of World War II or just someone who wants to know what combat is really like, you’ll be astounded by the rawness and bravery in The Man on the Ground.
