Overview
A real-life Marine Corps hero featured in HBO(r)'s The Pacific tells his own true story.
In this harrowing, up-close-and-personal memoir, R.V. Burgin reveals his experiences as a Marine at war in the Pacific Theater, where Company K confronted hidden snipers, ambushes along narrow jungle trails, abandoned corpses of hara-kiri victims, and howling banzai attacks as they island-hopped from one bloody battle to the next. During his two years of service, Burgin rose from a green private to a seasoned sergeant, and earned a Bronze Star for his valor at Okinawa.
With unforgettable drama and an understated elegance, Burgin's gripping narrative chronicles the waning days of World War II, bringing to life the hell that was the Pacific War.
