J. Forrest Pollard was named after Forrest Prince, his father's best friend, who died at his side during the Battle of Tarawa. From an early age he developed an interest in the Pacific War, and that interest remains with him today. Pollard has previously published one book on the history of found war relics from the Pacific War, as told by the veterans associated with these relics.
