E. B. Sledge was barely in his twenties when he volunteered for the U. S. Marines. By the time he landed on the beach at Peleliu in 1944, his patriotic idealism and his understanding of the strategic importance of the island were of secondary consequence to his determination to survive. Recalling the friendships forged and lost during the battles, this field memoir is a stirring chronicle of action and courage.
