Pacific Grit

(The third book in the Decker's Marine Raiders series)
A novel by

Victory is sweet… but in the melodious jungles of The Canal… it can turn sour in an instant…

After repelling Kawaguchi’s bloody assault on Edson’s Ridge, the Marines of Henderson Field are putting the pieces back together. General Vandegrift and his officers are celebrating a victory, but they know that the war is far from over… and that when the Japanese regroup, it’s going to be with more men, more weapons and even greater ferocity. The arrival of the Seventh Marine Regiment and supplies is certainly welcome… but there’s a dark side to Admiral Turner’s generosity…

Prolonged and bloody fighting…

Meanwhile, Al Decker and his Raider squad must rescue New Zealand missionary Andrew Denton’s family and free the village of Talisi from a Japanese platoon. The clock is ticking as they have wounded men that need a doctor, Japanese prisoners bent on escape and innocent civilians’ lives hanging in the balance. They’ll be fighting all the way across the weather coast and back to Henderson to rejoin their fellow Marines.

With the arrival of chesty Puller, Vandegrift wants to push across the Matanikau River in an attempt to secure Japanese-held territory. The only way to stem the tide of the tenacious enemy from pouring over the perimeter and overrunning the airfield… but as usual on Guadalcanal… nothing is easy.

In this explosive third installment, the jungles roar with artillery, automatic weapons fire and the screams of the wounded and dying! Decker, Edson and Puller must use whatever means necessary to smash through Japanese lines and secure the freedom and safety of themselves and the people of the Solomons!
