"For anyone who cares abou the human dimension of war - its cost and its heroism - Sid Phillips' book is a must-[listen]." (Ken Burns)
Not as deep as Helmet For My Pillow or With The Old Breed, but still an interesting collection of stories about the experiences of a young Marine in WW2. The afterward section at the very end has a few odd moments though.
A tipical story of the Korean War, but I would still recommend it to others.
