Cracking WW2 book,
This review is from: With the Old Breed: The World War Two Pacific Classic (Pacific TV Tie in) (Paperback)
Having never been a fan of the Pacific theatre during WW2 i struggled to get into watching the mini series that was made using the books and characters as it material. After i've read this book i am now a convert and will do my best to read up on more of the Pacific campain.
The way Sledge comes across in his is book is a real breath of fresh air and at some parts while reading it i felt like i was there with him. This is now in my list of top 5 favourite WW2 books and thats not bad considering i didn't enjoy anything to do with the war fought in the Pacific.
In short if you enjoy WW2 books you enjoy this and even if you don't enjoy WW2 books and enjoy reading it a cracking good book.
