The Last First Sergeant
The Last First Sergeant
by Layton Black
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Airborne story, 4 Jun 2013
I have read all the World War Two classics such as "To Hell And Back " and "With The Old Breed" , at one point I had over two thousand books dealing with the war many of which were personal narratives . I have just finished "The Last First Sergeant " and I can honestly say I have never read a better account of one man's war , I found it hard to put the book down , but at the same time I did not want to finish it too quickly .
The is certainly a book I shall read over and over again , and I cannot recommend it too highly .

The author commanded the platoon of Marines who raised the American Flag over Mount Suribatchi on Iwo Jima . Here is his thrilling account of the battle and of the events that led up to his part in it . This book is a must for anyone interested in the U.S.Marines and the Pacific War

5.0 out of 5 stars War At The Sharp End, 16 Nov 2003
This review is from: The Guns of Victory (Hardcover)
This is a superb sequel to Guns Of Normandy . It shows on a very personal level , the strain of constant action on the ordinary soldier . The author served throughout the campaign in North West Europe as a F.O.O. with the 2nd.Canadian Infantry Division .

5.0 out of 5 stars Take These Men, 16 Nov 2003
This is without doubt , the best account of armoured warfare in the desert ever published. Although written as fiction , it is firmly based on the personal experience of the author who served as an officer in the R.T.R. with 7th.Armoured Division throughout the campaign in North Africa . I have read this book several times , and look forward to reading it again soon .

5.0 out of 5 stars Destroyer Cotten, 1 Aug 2003
This is a very well written , and detailed account of the war at sea in the Pacific , as seen by a junior officer . It does not contain any false heroics , but rather shows the day to day events that shaped this young mans life .

4.0 out of 5 stars Hold Back The Night, 26 July 2003
This review is from: Hold Back the Night (Paperback)
An excellent account of a company of U.S.Marines in the retreat from the Chosin Reservoir in Korea late 1950 . The characters of the men , and the savage nature of the fighting are all bought to life .

A very detailed account of the process of training a young man to become a U.S.Naval flyer. The book takes the reader from the vey beginning of the training through to the final combat flying a Hellcat fighter from an aircraft carrier in the closing months of the Pacific War
