Beschreibung

This story of the Solomon Island coast watchers, primarily Jack Read and Paul Mason, recounts one of the most successful intelligence operations of World War II. Few realized that when the first waves of U.S. Marines landed on the bitterly contested beaches of Guadalcanal, coast watchers on Bougainville, New Georgia, and other islands were sending warning signals of impending Japanese air raids almost two hours before enemy aircraft formation appeared over the island. This is the remarkable story of the Bougainville coast watchers, their key intelligence reports, and their struggles for survival in the Japanese-patrolled jungles of Bougainville.
