Islands of the Damned: A Marine at War in the Pacific

Islands of the Damned: A Marine at War in the Pacific

A dramatic first-hand account of one Marine’s experiences in the Pacific theatre from boot camp to Okinawa. Slightly self-aggrandizing, as you might expect from a Texan, it’s a gripping story of courage and hardship amidst some of the toughest battles between New Britain and Japan.
