Just Another Day in Paradise A history of
Kwajalein, Marshall islands unravels the hidden stories of Kwajalein

Kwajalein Atoll

Now available is the most comprehensive book on the island of Kwajalein ever written. "Just Another Day in Paradise, A History of Kwajalein, Marshall Islands," describes in great detail the phenomenon of one of the most interesting islands in the world: Kwajalein. The 92 small islands on the reef that fringes the lagoon lie only a few feet above sea level at high tide. It is the world's largest atoll and was the first pre-war Japanese territory wrested from Japan in World War II. Since then, through the Korean War and into the late 1950’s, Kwajalein was an important mid-Pacific stop for air travelers. For the last 60 years the landscape has been dominated by state-of-the-art radar suites used to track missiles and sometimes shoot them down.

Inside the Book

After the successful capture of Kwajalein and the other islands on the atoll by the 7th Infantry Division and the 4th Marine Division in 1944, the conditions on the ground were awful. Virtually all the Japanese buildings were reduced to piles of rubble and had to be cleared away for new construction. This is where Just Another Day in Paradise begins. There have been many books and articles written about the capture of Kwajalein and many more about the radar and missile testing that has gone on there since the early 1960s. What has been lacking is a thorough presentation of the living conditions on the island. These include the airport, harbor, barracks, quarters, schools, newspapers, recreation. These and other subjects are dealt with in detail in text and photos in this well-appointed book. Over 750 black & white photos are included in the 298 pages of the book. Many are from private collections and have not been seen by the public before. Also included are over 50 maps, charts and other illustrations.
