"The first half of this book is meant to give an over-all picture of the battle for Tarawa. It has been compiled from the news dispatches and photographs which came in, day after day, from the scene of combat. In many instances, stories have been reproduced in their entirety. The second half is devoted to the men who did such a magnificent jobs of telling Tarawa's astonishing story. The photographers and reporters at Betio met and mastered the toughest assignment imaginable. It is to them, then--in admiration--that the book is dedicated."--p. [9].
