Editorial Reviews

Review

Narrator Barrett Whitener...knows how to keep the writer in the limelight, letting the fun come from Manchester's style and content. Whitener's quiet manner sometimes morphs to a whisper in a delivery perfect for a warrior's memories. Although this is an entertaining memoir, it also serves as an excellent history of the Pacific Campaign. --AudioFile

Belongs with the best war memoirs ever written. --Los Angeles Times

When Manchester speaks of the awesome heroism and hideous suffering of the Marines he lived with and fought with, he is reverent before the mystery of individual courage and gallantry.--Baltimore Sun

Gripping…. It is impossible for an American to read this book without pride in what his country accomplished in those days of enormous challenge.--Christian Science Monitor --.
