Hell to Eternity

Hell to Eternity

On a body-strewn Pacific hell, nine Japanese surrender to American troops. Then another handful. Then another. Soon, hundreds give up, urged by a lone warrior fighting tough and speaking their language. But the warrior isn’t a countryman. He’s Marine Guy Gabaldon, a non-Asian kid from the streets of East L.A. From Guy’s cross-cultural upbringing in a Japanese-American family to his heroism as he repeatedly risks his life to save untold numbers of fellow Devil Dogs, Hell to Eternity tells Guy’s rugged, real-life story. He won the Navy Cross...and the gratitude of all America. If his tale were fiction, you might not believe it. But it’s real. And unforgettable in its courage, sacrifice and honor.
