This is a World War II fictional account about American minority Army battalions getting sent to the Solomon Islands in the Southwest Pacific to help out in the struggle to defeat The Imperial Japanese Army.
Hell on the Solomons is a fictional account that takes place on the Solomon Islands during the year 1944. It represents American minorities as U.S. Army soldiers of Company L 10th Infantry Battalion. The young African-American Infantry Captain Robert McCray receives the first call to lead his battalion in a highly dangerous amphibious landing assault on the heavily fortified beach of Bougainville Island, which is occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army. Captain McCray has the frontline assistance of a tough Hispanic-American U.S. Army Battalion Sergeant John Martinez and a Japanese-American U.S. Army Major Jack Yoshida (consultant of jungle warfare). With no support from U.S. Army battle tanks or U.S. Army aircraft on this mission, Company L 10th Infantry must start the assault as the first battalion to land on the beach and disarm the thunderous Japanese 88-millimeter howitzer cannons that align the beach shore.
