Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A VIVID NARRATIVE . . . A splendid first-person account of the costly campaign that enabled Allied forces to wrest Guadalcanal from the Japanese in World War IIs Pacific theater.”

—Kirkus Reviews

“By reading and studying No Bended Knee, the military professional can gain an appreciation for war at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels. Twining writes as he served his corps—boldly and straightforwardly, with impeccable detail and superb understanding of things strategic.”

—Airpower Journal

“A VIEW FROM THE NERVE CENTER COMPLETE WITH TELLING PERSONAL ANECDOTES.”

—Journal Inquirer (Manchester, CT)

“Twining adds notably to the literature on Guadalcanal and provides one of the best accounts of war as seen from the perspective of the often maligned yet absolutely indispensable headquarters staff.”

—Booklist

“CANDID AND REVEALING.”

—Publishers Weekly
