"Everyone should read this book, the story of a true American Hero. I served with John Basilone and I can hear his voice in every page." --Thomas O. Nass, 5th Marine Division, WWII
"This book about the legendary John Basilone is presented in such a personal style that one would believe that "Manila John" is still alive. Not since William Manchester authored his memoir GOODBYE DARKNESS twenty-five years ago has a book been written about one man that seems so authentic." --Col. Ken Jordan, USMC, ret.
"A lot has been written about my brother in the war, but it's important to know his whole story. This book tells the story of John as a boy, a teenager, and a man. Every student should study and learn from it." --Carlo Basilone, John's brother
A good book is an excellent companion.
