This Band of Brothers for the Pacific is the gut-wrenching and ultimately triumphant story of the Marines' most ferocious -- yet largely forgotten -- battle of World War II. Between September 15 and October 15, 1944, the First Marine Division suffered more than 6,500 casualties fighting on a hellish little coral island in the Pacific. Peleliu was the setting for one of the most savage struggles of modern times, a true killing ground that has been all but forgotten -- until now. Drawing on interviews with Peleliu veterans, Bill Sloan's gripping narrative seamlessly weaves together the experiences of the men who were there, producing a vivid and unflinching tableau of the twenty-four-hour-a-day nightmare of Peleliu. Emotionally moving and gripping in its depictions of combat, Brotherhood of Heroes rescues the Corps's bloodiest battle from obscurity and does honor to the Marines who fought it.

Bill Sloan worked for ten years as an investigative reporter and feature writer for the Dallas Times Herald, where he was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. He is the author of numerous books including Elvis, Hank and Me: Making Musical History on the Louisiana Hayride, Given up for Dead: America's Heroic Stand at Wake Island, and JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness.
