Helmet for my Pillow

The World War Two Pacific Classic

Presents author's journey, from boot camp 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. This title provides details of the horrors and sacrifice of war, painting a portrait of how real warriors are made, fight, and often die in the defence of their country.
Portrait
Robert Leckie was born on December 18, 1920 in Philadelphia. After enlisting in the United States Marine Corps shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he worked in the 1st Marine Division as a machine gunner and as an intelligence scout during the Battle of Guadalcanal. He was later awarded the Purple Heart. Helmet for My Pillow received the Marine Corps Combat Correspondents' Annual Award in 1957. He died in December 2001.
Zitat
"Helmet for My Pillow is a grand and epic prose poem. Robert Leckie's theme is the purely human experience of war in the Pacific, written in the graceful imagery of a human being who - somehow - survived" -- Tom Hanks "A powerful book that pulls no punches" The New York Review of Books "One hell of a book! The real stuff that proves the U.S. Marines are the greatest fighting men on earth!" -- Leon Uris, Author Of Battle Cry
