With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa by E.B. Sledge
The bloody island battles of Peleliu and Okinawa in the Pacific during WWII are described through the eyes of a young Marine from Alabama in this classic war narrative. Studs Terkel was so enamored of this moving memoir that he interviewed the author for his book The Good War. As strongly as the fear and brutality of war are described, so is the compassion and friendship for his fellow Marines. Check catalog for availability.
