Pacific Mettle

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

The war in the Pacific is a pressure cooker… and the Solomon Islands is a valve ready to burst…

Hungry, exhausted and bloody, the U.S. Marines on Guadalcanal can’t rest for long… because the Empire of the Rising Sun is massing to roll over them like a bloody tsunami. And all that separates the marines from destruction is a single little river… and 500 miles of tropical islands.

The Japanese are massing for a major offensive just across the Matanikau. In spite of their failure to cross, Chesty Puller and Red Mike Edson have to try again. This time with more men and from three sides… but now… Kawaguchi and Oka are ready and have planned some unpleasant surprises for them.

Al Decker and his Raiders are sent to an obscure island halfway between Guadalcanal and Rabaul. The Japanese are building an airstrip there and if completed… will give them the power to consume the Cactus Airforce and Henderson Field in the fires of living hell. They must be stopped at any cost… and Decker must battle ferocious Japanese and a personal rivalry that threatens to explode.

Can these battle-weary Marines cork Hirohito’s bottle or will they be scorched by the Rising Sun?

Guns blaze and the jungles of the Pacific rumble as the destiny of the world hangs in the balance!
