Voices of the Pacific free pdf A firsthand chronicle of United States Marine Corps' actions in the Pacific
Following fifteen Marines from the Pearl Harbor attack, through battles with the Japanese, to their return home after V-J Day, Adam Makos and Marcus Brotherton have compiled an oral history of the Pacific War in the words of the men who fought on the front lines. With unflinching honesty, these Marines reveal harrowing accounts of combat with an implacable enemy, the friendships and camaraderie they found--and lost--and the aftermath of the war's impact on their lives.
With unprecedented access to the veterans, rare photographs, and unpublished memoirs, "Voices of the Pacific" presents true stories of heroism as told by such World War II veterans as Sid Phillips, R. V. Burgin, and Chuck Tatum--whose exploits were featured in the HBO(R) miniseries, "The Pacific"--and their Marine buddies from the legendary 1st Marine Division.
Includes rare photos!
