Robert Leckie enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in January 1942, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In Helmet for My Pillow, we follow his odyssey, from basic training on Parris Island, South Carolina, all the way to the raging battles in the Pacific, where some of the war's fiercest fighting took place. Recounting his service with the 1st Marine Division and the brutal action on Guadalcanal, New Britain, and Peleliu, Leckie spares no detail of the horrors and sacrifices of war, painting an unvarnished portrait of how real warriors are made, fight, and often die in the defense of their country. From the live-for-today rowdiness of marines on leave to the terrors of jungle warfare against an enemy determined to fight to the last man, Leckie describes what war is really like when victory can only be measured inch by bloody inch. Woven throughout are Leckie's hard-won, eloquent, and thoroughly unsentimental meditations on the meaning of war and why we fight. Unparalleled in its immediacy and accuracy, Helmet for My Pillow will leave no one untouched. This is a book that brings you as close to the mud, the blood, and the experience of war as it is safe to come. Now producers Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman, the men behind Band of Brothers, have adapted material from Helmet for My Pillow for HBO's epic miniseries The Pacific, which will thrill and edify a whole new generation., Includes over 220 photos, maps and plans following Robert "Lucky" Leckie's Pacific War with the 1st Marine Division, Leckie, Robert,1920-, Leckie, Robert,1920-2001., MWT10764236, MWT11522013, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Nelson, John Allen,1959-, Nelson, John Allen,1959-.|Narrator, Read by John Allen Nelson., Unabridged., United States.Marine Corps., World War, 1939-1945, [Old Saybrook, Conn.] :Tantor Audio,2010., [United States]:Tantor Audio ,2010., [United States]:Verdun Press ,2015., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ins_9781786252036_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ttm_9781400190508_180.jpeg, n-us---p------, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
