A superb read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helmet for my Pillow: The World War Two Pacific Classic (Paperback)
I have just finished reading this book and it is one that is hard to put down. I watched the box set of the Pacific and had to get the two books on which the series was based. The TV series is good but you have to read Eugene Sledge's account to even begin to understand what these brave marines had to endure. It is by far the most compelling account of warfare and the effect it has on ordinary men like Sledge that I have ever read.
