Bougainville Island : The Road Back Paperback / softback


Bougainville Island is a fictional account that takes place on the Solomon Islands during the year 1944.

It represents American minorities as U.S. Army soldiers of Company L 10th Infantry Battalion. The young African-American Infantry Captain Robert McCray receives the first call to lead his battalion in a highly dangerous amphibious landing assault on the heavily fortified beach of Bougainville Island, which is occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army.

Captain McCray has the frontline assistance of a tough Hispanic-American U.S.

Army Battalion Sergeant John Martinez and a Japanese-American U.S.

Army Major Jack Yoshida (Consultant of Jungle Warfare).

With no support from U.S. Army battle tanks or U.S. Army aircraft on this mission, Company L 10th Infantry must start the assault as the first battalion to land on the beach and disarm the thunderous Japanese 88-millimeter howitzer cannons that align the beach shore.
