More About Bloody Ridge and Beyond by Marlin Groft; Larry Alexander
 
 
 
Overview
On the island of Guadalcanal, a 2,000-yard-long ridge rose from the jungle canopy. Behind it lay the air base of Henderson Field. And if Henderson Field fell, it would mean the almost certain death or capture of all 12,500 Marines on the island . . .
Positioned on the ridge were the hard-fighting men of Edson s Raiders of the 1st Marine Raider Battalion. They were the United States Marine Corps best of the best, and they knew defeat and retreat were simply not options.
For two hellish nights in September 1942, about 840 Marines commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Merritt Austin Red Mike Edson fought one of the most pivotal battles of World War II in the Pacific, clinging desperately to their position on what would soon be known as Bloody Ridge.
Bloody Ridge and Beyond is the story of how these men showed courage and valor in the face of overwhelming numbers, as told by Marlin Groft, a man who was a member of this incredible fighting force.
