Hero of The Pacific.

This book was not at all what I had expected. It seemed to me the author was trying to find fault in what John Basilone said,or didn't say and whether it was true or not true. I would not recommend this book. I am sure John Basilone was a great Hero and a man to admire, but I don't think this book does him justice.

DON'T BUY THIS BOOK

A incredibly poor book filled with assumptions and conclusions not seated in fact. Written by a newspaper man (definition: Those who can't do will write and be critical about events they know nothing about). The only redeeming part of this book, the epilogue (and I'm being kind) is the only part worth reading, and that not so much.
