Publisher's Summary

At the height of the Battle of Iwo Jima, during a U.S. assault on a vital airfield on the day after the island invasion began, Jack Lucas and three other Marines were attacking a Japanese pillbox when two enemy grenades landed in their midst. Private Lucas jumped on both of them, driving them into the volcanic ash. Then they exploded. Thus did a 17-year-old from North Carolina become the youngest soldier in the twentieth century, and the youngest Marine in history, to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Today, when Jack Lucas speaks, crowds gather to honor him and pay tribute to Marine heritage and pride. Mr. Lucas is as close a thing to a rock star as our World War II generation has.

Indestructible

Poorly written with very little space devoted to the writer's battlefield experiences. The book is esentially a story of his boyhood experiences with boilerplate writing of the main battle which has been in the public domain for decades.

I think this is a vary well written book. After listening to this it gave me much greater respect for everyone who fought and died during WW2. Before i discovered this book I was already thinking about joining the navel special forces but after listening to Indestructible I am more determined to join than ever.
