This book is a 'must-read' for all military people and those who are interested in World War Two history of the South Pacific fighting.

The story begins in the President of the United States Oval Office with initial measures taken by powerful historic figures, steps that defy reader conclusions, and quickly gathers strength and direction as it draws the reader along with its gradually quickening pace without disclosing the culmination of qOperation Sidewinderq until the inevitable action EXPLODES!

The lights are large flashlight bulbs in a circuit with batteries and an on-off switch, and are easily visible for half a mile.
