(8/1/22) Using diary entries, interviews and first-hand accounts, author and screenwriter Thomas McKelvey Cleaver brings to life the struggle in the air over the island of Guadalcanal between August 20 and November 15, 1942. For 40 years from 1961, the late Eric Hammel interviewed more than 150 American participants in the air campaign at Guadalcanal, none of whom are still alive. These interviews are the most comprehensive first-person accounts of the battle assembled by any historian. More importantly, they involved the junior officers and enlisted men whose stories and memories were not part of the official history, thus providing a unique insight. Join us when Pacific War expert Thomas McKelvey Cleaver examines the unpublished stories covering these events.
