This book is a real mine of never published photos about USMC Aviation during World War 2 in the Pacific, testimonies, genuine flight gear and equipment, period documents... Author's note on the back cover : "When Japan attacked the United States on December 7, 1941, Americans realized they would be fighting on the largest battlefield in history: the Pacific Ocean. The evolution of this conflict, which started with carrier strikes, made aviation and aircraft carriers the dominant elements of the two majors combatants. Among those deployed by the Americans were elite aviators attached to the Marine Corps from ground-based or embarked units. Fighting in a hostile environment thousands of miles away from home, these men performed courageous exploits daily. Using original source material from the photographic albums and the archives of some of them, here is their history."

General Roy S. Geiger, USMC: Marine Aviator, Joint Force Commander (World War II)
General Roy S. Geiger, USMC: Marine Aviator, Joint
This book comprises an effort to answer the question of how an airman can be qualified to be a Joint Force Commander, using the biographical example of General Roy S. Geiger, USMC. Geiger was the fifth designated Marine Aviator, earning his wings in June of 1917. He then served as a squadron commander in the First Marine Aviation Force in World War I (WW I), where he flew combat sorties and earned his first Navy Cross. In the interwar years, he served in multiple command billets, acted as head of Marine Aviation, and performed with distinction as a student at the Army Command and General Staff School and the Army and Navy War Colleges. During World War II, Geiger commanded the First Marine Aircraft Wing and the CACTUS Air Force in the dark days of the Guadalcanal Campaign in 1942, where at age fifty-seven he again flew in combat, earning his second Navy Cross. He went on to serve as an Amphibious Corps Commander in the Pacific Theater, where he led campaigns at Bougainville, Guam, and Peleliu. Finally, he distinguished himself in the battle of Okinawa as the only Marine ever to command a field Army, the Tenth Army. After World War II, Lieutenant General Geiger continued to shape the Marine Corps in command of Fleet Marine Forces, Pacific until his premature death in 1947. The stu...
