A war memoir of Eugene Sledge. It tells of the cruelty, bravery and deaths of the men he fought at Peleliu and Okinawa - two of the fiercest and filthiest Pacific battles of WWII - and of his own journey from patriotic innocence to battle-scarred veteran.

Review:

Eugene Sledge became more than a legend with his memoir, With The Old Breed. He became a chronicler, a historian, a storyteller who turns the extremes of the war in the Pacific - the terror, the camaraderie, the banal and the extraordinary - into terms we mortals can grasp. Tom Hanks In all the literature on the Second World War, there is not a more honest, realistic or moving memoir than Eugene Sledge's. This is the real deal, the real war: unvarnished, brutal, without a shred of sentimentality or false patriotism, a profound primer on what it actually was like to be in that war. It is a classic that will outlive all the armchair generals' safe accounts of--not the "good war"--but the worst war ever. Ken Burn Of all the books about the ground war in the Pacific, [With the Old Breed] is the closest to a masterpiece. The New York Review of Book

From the Publisher:

The amazing and moving WW2 memoir, on which the major new Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg series The Pacific is based.
