Review

.,."this book is an excellent one for young and old alike and can be highly recommended." -Scott Van Aken," modelingmadness.com"
"Larry Hama's "Fight to the Death,.". isn't your usual military survey of events: it is presented in graphic novel format and captures the facts of battle into a presentation filled with fictionalized adventure. More so than most nonfiction standard histories it brings to life the events and drama of Guadalcanal and is especially recommended for students just learning about events who will appreciate the intimacy of the graphic novel format... [This history] will also appeal to young adults studying the facts of military history - this audience will find a much more accessible format and history here." -"The Bookwatch Midwest Book Review"

Brings to life the events and drama of Guadalcanal 10 April 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com

Larry Hama's FIGHT TO THE DEATH: THE BATTLE OF GUADALCANAL isn't your usual military survey of events: it is presented in a graphic novel format, and captures the facts of battle into a presentation filled with fictionalized adventure. More so than most nonfiction standard histories it brings to life the events and drama of Guadalcanal and is especially recommended for students just learning about events who will appreciate the intimacy and events of the graphic novel format.
well written 31 July 2015
By M. Heiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book gives you the feeling of standing there, watching them fight for our country. I didn't know anything about Guadalcana;, and now I want to learn more.

The most impressive bio in the book was Albert Schmid, who was blinded by an artillery shell, but still fired his gun blind while being directed by his gunner's mate.

I'm an eighth grader and I have read a lot about WWII. I recommend this book.
Still wonder why they quit this series 28 Jun. 2013
By CD Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great quick, but interesting read for an adult and would make a great intro for a kid to WW2. The lost of the HMAS Canberra was an afterthought, but Basilone, Joe Foss, the Sullivans, and the Marine gunners Schmid and Diamond. Blind by a grenade, Schmid fired the gun while the badly wounded Diamond called aiming instructions. That's on my list for a diorama someday.

Cactus Comic Book 2 Dec. 2007
By Dennis Reilly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I expected much more from an Osprey publication. Even a comic book should tell a story with some continuity. FIGHT TO THE DEATH fails to do that and, it is a very poor introduction, for young people who would like to learn a little about the Guadalcanal campaign.
Page 47 offers some excellent suggested reading. The author apparently believed that research was not required.
Presenting history in this format is a fine idea. Hopefully, someone with an interest in his subject will provide the next offering.
