Synopsis

Lewis Seiler adapted the best-selling book by Richard Tregaskis to create a realistic, eye-witness account of U.S. Marines' struggle to regain control of Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands from the Japanese. Preston S. Foster plays a chaplain attached to the unit, Lloyd Nolan plays the sergeant and William Bendix and Anthony Quinn play enlistees. The film also made a star out of former office-boy, Richard Jaeckel.
