My friend Morgan lent me this book, part of the mini-series campagin about the second world war, in the pacific theater. It is really a history of the war seen through the marines and a bit of the navy, with a little wee bit of the army thrown in.
It’s not the more popular and known part of the second world war, so it was interesting to me and I actually learned a lot. It isn’t Band of Brothers part 2 either; the story has a whole different structure and reasoning.
It’s a little tedious at some points and takes about 100 pages to really get going, but the story is one that must be remembered and these vets suffered in ways we cannot even imagine. This book will really move you and give you a new appreciation for the marines and for the men and women who have and do serve in the forces.
