5.0 out of 5 stars red blood black sand, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have read With the old breed by E.B Sledge and Helmet for my pillow by Robert Leckie then this is a must ! it completes the trilogy of the story told by the HBO mini series The Pacific .It picks up the baton where the other books have almost finished and takes you through one of the last great battles of the pacific campaign - Iwo jima .

Chuck Tatum writes from the heart and leaves no detail out, from when he first enlisted ,to hitting the beach at Iwo jima ,although he covers quite a lot about the hero John Basilone the book is a testament to all the ordinary men who did an extraodinary job - the job of heros,who then returned to the USA and tried to pick up life where they left off .

This book tells their story ,by a man who has been there and done that ,and survived - Chuck Tatum ( bronze star)

Well written and hard to put down !

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 15 Jan 2013

This review is from: Red Blood, Black Sand: Fighting Alongside John Basilone from Boot Camp to Iwo Jima (Hardcover)
I have read other books about the Pacific war but not one that is on such a personal level. Iwo Jima was an awful and horrific ordeal for the Marines and Japanese who took part and this book manages to convey that to the reader, even though I have no experience of such ordeals. If you are into military history then I recommend this book.
