With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa by Eugene Sledge. [This book] is a first-hand account of the horrifying conditions of an 18-year-old Marine in some of the hardest fought battles of World War II. I recommend this book because it reminds today’s men what men in a prior generation had to endure to preserve freedom while teaching lessons in morality which all men need to learn.
I frequently use or reference this book in a class I teach at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
