Synopsis
In 1942 an American army unit is sent to the island of Guadalcanal, where the Japanese mount a desperate offensive to establish their superiority in the Southwest Pacific. This is a graphic and unsparing story, from the battles and jungle patrols, to the departure of the survivors.
Amazon.com Review
An old Midwestern saying goes, "There's only a thin red line between the sane and the mad." War seems to stretch that line almost to the breaking point. James Jones's classic World War II novel recounts with brutal honesty the stories of the men of C-for-Charlie Company as they struggle to hold on to their honor, their sanity, and their lives on Guadalcanal. Actor Joe Mantegna turns in an able performance, his voice expressing a roller coaster of emotions (though his Welsh accent may require some patience). Whether or not you agree with Jones that war is the "most heroic of all human endeavors," this recording will move you. (Running time: 6 hours, 4 cassettes) --C.B. Delaney
