Guadacanal depicts some of the bloodiest WWII battles on Victory at Sea
While also taking sights in Australia and New Zealand, the U.S. Marines suffer defeat after defeat at the hands of the Japanese at the base of Guadacanal. As the reduced crew retreats, however, a new one comes to take its place in a remarkable example of endurance...Interesting scenic shots of what the jungles of Guadacanal looked like during this time in history. Essential information is conveyed by the narrator about how some deaths are caused not just by battle but also by malaria that comes from the long stays in the Guadacanal rain forests. The number of people dying on both sides is especially emphasized here. Despite that, a can-do spirit ends another Victory at Sea episode as helped, as always, by the stirring music of Richard Rodgers...
