William Hollingsworth Whyte was known to the Marines in the 3rd Battalion simply as Holly Whyte - - - Not even as Lieutenant Whyte, the 3rd Battalion's intelligence officer or (in Marine Corps lingo) the BN-2. To we who served in the 3rd Battalion during the battle to secure Guadalcanal (A Battle Without Maps) the peak of Holly's efforts were expended in his description of our battalion commander, Lt. Col William N. McKelvy, USNA 1921.

The battle for control of Guadalcanal and what Americans learned from it forms the heart of William H. Whyte's . William H. Whyte is most often remembered by the public as the author of The Organization Man, the 1956 best-selling examination of modern American society. Whyte's memoir, published here for the first time. Urbanologists remember him as a student of urban behavior and designer of living spaces. He was both, of course, but first he was a Marine, a fact he paid homage to when he said on the jacket of The Organization Man that he "was educated at Princeton and in the United States Marine Corps at Guadalcanal.

  • William Hollingsworth Whyte was known to the Marines in the 3rd Battalion simply as Holly Whyte - - - Not even as Lieutenant Whyte, the 3rd Battalion's intelligence officer or (in Marine Corps lingo) the BN-2. To we who served in the 3rd Battalion during the battle to secure Guadalcanal (A Battle Without Maps) the peak of Holly's efforts were expended in his description of our battalion commander, Lt. Col William N. McKelvy, USNA 1921. Holly's characterizations of "Spike" McKelvy (the "Wild Bill" was acquired during the Guadalcanal campaign) are direct, descriptive and humorous. If Holly knew the rumours that "Spike" McKelvy alledgedly was "anchorman" in his USNA class, he never mentions it in a "A Time of War". Perhaps Holly's silent acknowledgment accounts for the fun he pokes at his commanding officer. Or, it may be a measure of the frivolity that carried us through the darkest days on the 'Canal.

  • Great first-hand account of Guadalcanal by a young Marine officer addressing trials and tribulations of the campaign.

  • Oh my goodness. I'm doing research for a WWll Guadalcanal Marine and this is the best reference guide. Thank you Mr. Whyte!

  • this appears to be the last book written by william h. whyte, author of the organization man. it's a lovely memoir about his days as a battalion intelligence officer on guadalcanal, serving under an amazing character named wild bill mckely, who was just a little drunk during the entire campaign. it's a warm, humorous, and at the same time deeply analytical account of one of the great decisive battles of world war 2. i loved it.
