Rate this:
Here, in heart-stopping human detail, are twenty-one personal accounts from these men-stories told by the men themselves. They are the stories of men who have lived in hell and lived to tell of it. Here is Sgt. Albert Schmid who was awarded the Navy Cross for his single-handed destruction of a flanking attack, during which he accounted for 200 Japs on Guadalcanal. Here is Private Nicolli who was literally blown into the air like a matchstick and then, with a piece of shrapnel in his chest, helped a wounded comrade to the rear. Here is the story of a Marine gunner in a Navy dive-bomber, and the story of "the luckiest Marine in the Solomons" whose tonsils were neatly eliminated by a Jap sniper, and many others.If you want to know how our boys are taking this war, if you want the complete stories behind the headlines from the Pacific, this should be your book. Your blood will run faster as you, yourself, spend memorable days and nights "out in the boondocks."
