If anyone wants to read a great book about WWII, I highly suggest--With the Old Breed at Peleliu and Okinawa. Once you start, you can't put it down. It is not for the faint of heart though.

It's sad but the progression of time is relentless. These were the adults of my youth; my parents and their contemporaries. They were young, vital and focused individuals in my memory, and they were what I thought adults should be. Some had obvious scars from the war, some less so, but we never asked them to talk about it. The stuff they talked about doing on the home front was harrowing enough. The truly don't make 'em like that anymore.
