Bill McGee’s acclaimed World War II military history, The Solomons Campaigns, 1942-1943: From Guadalcanal to Bougainville, Pacific War Turning Point, wins the MILITARY WRITERS SOCIETY OF AMERICA 2018 SILVER MEDAL AWARD FOR HISTORY!

The awards were formally announced on November 10, 2018 at the MWSA annual awards banquet in Charleston, S.C.

Published in 2001, this second volume in Bill’s Pacific war trilogy garnered immediate critical praise. The Marine Corps League reviewer wrote, “Enough gripping drama, heroism, and heartbreak in William L. McGee’s The Solomons Campaigns to supply Hollywood with material for a century.” The Library Journal wrote, “In The Solomons Campaigns, William L. McGee has written the second of a three-volume set that will form a definitive account of naval, sea, and land operations in the South Pacific.”

Bill has a few dozen softcover copies left in his author inventory and suggests a signed copy with a Silver Medal Award sticker on the front cover would make a great gift for the history buff on your list. Click on Signed Copies to order.
