- An Infantryman's Life After World War II
- By: E. B. Sledge, Stephen E. Ambrose
- Narrated by: Dan John Miller
- Length: 5 hrs and 11 mins
Picking up where his previous memoir leaves off, Sledge, a young marine in the First Division, traces his company's movements and charts his own difficult passage to peace following his horrific experiences in the Pacific. He reflects on his duty in the ancient city of Peiping (now Beijing) and recounts the difficulty of returning to his hometown of Mobile, Alabama, and resuming civilian life haunted by the shadows of close combat.

Hard to listen to when the narrator mispronounces words. Common Marine terms and proper nowns that are misspoke are like nails on a chalkboard to one who has worn the uniform. The story was good, and explains much of Sledgehammers time after combat ended. Things he wrote about hit close to home with my own experiences.
