[Geiger] Roger Willock, UNACCUSTOMED TO FEAR: A Biography of the Late General Roy S. Geiger. Ray Geiger's World War II service began in Guadalcanal as a Brigadier General with command of the 1st Marine Air Wing, Fleet Marine Force headquartered at Henderson Field. After a stint of Washington duty, he returned to the Pacific to relieve General Vandegrift as commander I Amphibious Corps. He led his Corps, then re-designated the II Amphibious Corps, in the invasion of Guam, Peleliu, and on Okinawa under General Buckner's Tenth Army. On Okinawa, he briefly commanded the Tenth Army after Buckner was killed and before General Stilwell took over, thus becoming the first and only Marine officer to command a field army. At the time of the surrender he was commander of the Fleet Marine Force, Pacific.

Jacket crimped but untorn at bottom of spine. Otherwise in new condition. Tom Doherty Associates, 2003. 494 pages. "November, 1942. In the Pacific with the U.S. Marines on Guadalcanal, and in North Africa with the British Armored Tank Command, James Reasoner puts readers into the thick of the most deadly action of World War II. The British Tank Command has been fighting an uphill battle with Rommel's Panzers. Brothers Joe and Dale Parker, detailed from the U.S. Army to help the British tankers, find themselves helping to turn the tide against the Desert Fox. Meanwhile, their friend Adam Bergman is in the Solomon Islands with the Marines, as the U.S. starts the bloody fight to reclaim the Pacific. Reasoner takes us into the heart of the fight in both theaters of war, and to wartime struggles on the home front, and in hospitals on ships and in temporary quarters near the fronts. The immediacy of his prose and the urgency of his story convey a passion and conviction that will stir the blood of anyone who cares about freedom and wants to understand its price."
