Richard Tregaskis reached the Pacific during World War II in time to see Doolitle's planes take off from the Hornet to bomb Tokyo. He was an eyewitness to the Battle of Midway, and was in the first wave of Marines to land at Guadalcanal. From this experience came the world-famous GUADALCANAL DIARY.
After this, Richard Tregaskis reached the Mediterranean Theatre in time for D-Day, flew on the first B-17 raid over Rome, and participated in the entire Sicilian campaign, the capture of Naples and the action on the Volturno River front. Gravely wounded at Cassino, he later returned to Europe and the Western Front, where he observed--within constant fire range--the soldiers and events that provided the spirit of his first great novel of World War II, STRONGER THAN FEAR.
