Issue Two of Invisible Soldiers covers the experiences of Earl Cannaday, who fought in the Bougainville Island campaign. He participated in the Laruma River operation, the occupation of the Outpost Line of Resistance to push enemy artillery out of range of Allied airstrips and led his unit's patrols to clear snipers out of the Allied perimeter.
Cannaday's story concentrates less on politics and focuses on the role of black soldiers in one of the war's major battles. Other histories of the 93rd in Bougainville devote sometimes more than 50 percent of their text to the failure of Company K in this operation. While "Invisible Soldiers" covers the incident , it is put into context with the records of the other 11 companies that performed well.
Cannaday's unit, the 2nd Battalion of the 25th Infantry Regiment, was the first 93rd Division unit into action and withstood the test of combat.
In other words, lots of action in this issue!
