Guadalcanal is a memoir written by war correspondent Richard Tregaskis and Published by Random House. Tregaskis relates combat and conversation in an immediately accessable vernacular, taking care to cite the full name, rank and hometown of each of the Marines he encountered over the week he was on the island. The book was so well recieved at home upon publication, and spoke such volumes of camaraderi amongst the Marines, that USMC still makes Guadalcanal Diary required reading for all officer canidates. First Printing 1943: 263 pages.
