THE TRUTH IS OFTEN NOT A COMFORTABLE BEDFELLOW!!! !! !,
This review is from: With the Old Breed: The World War Two Pacific Classic (Pacific TV Tie in) (Paperback)
E.B.SLEDGE writes with authority and from bitter experience, he explains how and why he joined up to the marine corps. The rigours of the training, and eventually how he felt when faced with certain death on the beaches of the Pacific islands. He relates the joy of comradeship, and of the sorrow at losing friends and respected leaders.
This is a book not for people who see war as Glory and Hurrahs, it is one mans account of the true horror of combat, and of the comradeship that kept him sane!
A must read book!!! !! !
