Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This book did not begin with the idea of a chronology of the battles of the Pacific War although an overview is included. But instead, it was intended to be a brief account of the battles on Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa as I retrace the travels of one marine from the farmland of Minnesota to Japan and back. Carl J. Johnson spent thirty months in the Pacific. Four of those months were in bitter combat on the islands of Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa. He is my uncle. I have been blessed to travel and to spend time at many of the places he traveled during World War II. My travels didn't stop there. As a Continental Airlines pilot based in Guam, now retired and currently living on Saipan, I have had the opportunity over a five-year period to visit other islands that were the scene of horrific battles of World War II. In addition to Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa, I will mention a few of them. Included are Guam, where I was based during the closing years of my airline career; also Belau, which is Palau, and includes Peleliu. Included too in this book are Iwo Jima, Corregidor, and the Philippines. In my travels beyond Hawaii and Pearl Harbor, which was my introduction into the Pacific, were Yap and Truk, which is Chuuk and Pohnpei in the Carolines. During my time in the Pacific, and mainly through my travels with the Military Historical Tours of Alexandria, Virginia, I have been presented with the opportunity to speak with several of the veterans of the Pacific War. Doing so has, in some cases, allowed me to understand in some small way a sense of the hell they had to suffer through. Included in this report are a few of their stories as well as stories from some of the people of the islands who, in one way or another, were involved in the conflict. -Richard Carl Bright.

What follows here, just a brief insight into Pain and Purpose in the Pacific. This book did not begin with the idea of a chronology of the battles of the Pacific War, although an overview is included. But instead it was intended to be a brief account of the battles on Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa as I retrace the travels of one Marine from the farmland of Minnesota to Japan and back. Carl J. Johnson spent 30 months in the Pacific. Four of those months were in bitter combat on the islands of Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa. He is my uncle. I have been blessed to travel, & to spend time at many of the places he traveled during World War II. My travels didn?t stop there.

As a Continental Airlines pilot based in Guam, now retired and having lived on Saipan, I have had the opportunity over a seven year period to visit other islands that were the scene of horrific battles of World War II. In addition to Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa, I will mention a few of them. Included are Guam where I was based during the closing years of my airline career; also Belau, which is Palau, and includes Peleliu. Included too in this book are Iwo Jima, Corregidor and the Philippines. In my travels beyond Hawaii and Pearl Harbor, which was my introduction into the Pacific, were Yap, and Truk, which is Chuuk, and Pohnpei in the Carolines.  And I?ve spent time in Japan.

During my time in the Pacific, I have been presented with the opportunity to speak with several of the veterans of the Pacific War. Doing so has in some cases allowed me in some small way to understand a sense of the hell they had to suffer through. Included in this report are a few of their stories, as well as stories from some of the people of the islands who in one way or another were involved in the conflict.

It is with a depth of gratitude that I acknowledge the Military Historical Tours of Alexandria, Virginia for allowing me to be a part of their tours to the islands of Iwo Jima, and Okinawa, as well as Guam, Tinian and Saipan. I appreciate this organization, dedicated to preserving the memories of the war, and to the honoring of the military personnel who were there at the time. While living on either Guam or Saipan I also was able to visit on my own most of the islands mentioned on this page. But it was the Military Historical Tours, and it?s President USMC Colonel Warren Wiedhahn (mht@miltours.com) that made it possible for me to visit Iwo Jima. They allowed me to join them once a year for 4 consecutive years. I have since returned a 5th time in March of 2010. It was through this great organization that over a 7 year period (while living on both Guam and Saipan in the Marianas Islands), I was able to meet most of the WWII veterans mentioned here; and these aging veterans of the War in the Pacific whom I have met, have touched my heart. In addition to my uncle, this book is for them too.      

 

Über den Autor:

Richard Carl Bright was born and raised in Walker Minnesota. Some of his earliest memories are of riding with his uncle Carl on a tractor where Carl farmed, near the town of Akeley, Minnesota, just 10 miles from Walker. At that time, Carl had only recently returned to Minnesota. He returned to his farm, and a new life after World War Two in the Pacific.

Richard (Dick) is a graduate of Walker High School, and Bemidji State University, where he attended classes, and Columbia State and Hamilton Universities through distance learning and correspondence. He has degrees in Geography, Earth Science, Theology, and Religious Studies, but holds very little importance to the degrees themselves. He says: "Education is essential, but it is what one believes, and the action he takes that makes the difference."

Richard Bright has authored The Ark, A Reality? and Quest for Discovery. He is a Vietnam veteran. He holds an Airline Transport Pilot Rating, and is a retired airline Captain. He retired from Continental Airlines in late 2004. He's the father of one daughter Courtney and at the time of this work, he lived on the island of Saipan.
