Wake Island battle in December, 1941


For you WWII buffs, there is a great book about this action called" Pacific Alamo - The Battle For Wake Island" written by John Wukovits (2003).

It's amazing the fight a few hundred Marines and civilian workers put up against the Japanese and the damage inflicted by them against the enemy was way out of proportion to their numbers.

Wake managed to hold out until December 24, 1941.

It's a great read and I would highly recomend it.
