The Fight for Guadalcanal WWII

This is the real story of Operation Watchtower, America’s first victorious attack on Japanese-held land and one of the fiercest battles in the Pacific in WWII. Dramatic filmed combat footage in Color and B&W and rare still photography capture all the intense fighting from the air, sea, and land. Witness the six months of hell that earned Guadalcanal the nickname, The Island of Death in 1942.
