AUTHOR

SUMMARY

Human interest account by Lt. Col. Ladd, a retired Marine infantry officer who saw extensive combat in the Pacific with the 2nd Marine Division at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan & Tinian. His story is unique in that he thoroughly retraced all his unit's campaign areas during two trips. The second time he again led some of his old platoon for a sentimental two weeks while they reverted to their youth, reliving foxhole buddy days of adventure, humor & sadness. He met island natives of his generation & Japanese veterans also revisiting the sites. A different perspective developed from these contacts, subsequent correspondence & a follow-up trip to Japan. This labor of love culminates ten years of travel, interviews & extensive research. "By far the most lucid & moving account of the Battle of Tarawa that I have read since Robert Sherrod's first person depiction written many years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed the book & hope many of our younger Marines are reading it as well," LGEN William Keys, USMC (RET.), former 2nd Division Commander. "I've learned more about the Gaudalcanal & Tarawa campaigns from FAITHFUL WARRIORS than many of the other books I've read combined," Milas Hinshaw Productions, Television & Motion Pictures.
