    I am reading now "With the Old Breed at Pelelieu and Okinawa", by Eugene Sledge. His memoirs of the time from before his enlistment to when he got out of the Marines during WWII. Absolutely riveting. The series The Pacific was based on a lot of this book.

    If you like WWII history then I have read "Pursuit, the chase and sinking of the Bismark" a first hand account by Ludovic Kennedy who was on one of the ships in the Royal Navy that sank the Bismark. And Patton,. Ordeal and Triumph by Ladislas Farago. Both are excellent reads.

    Not that I remember. Of course I am not finished yet. The book is his memoirs of his experience on Pelelieu and Okinawa. So far it is a great read. I saw an interview of him when he recounted what was going through his mind as he was being transported to the beaches of Pelelieu. His quote was "everything in my life prior to that moment paled in comparison to what he was about to experience." It was almost as if he was being reborn. In the series "The Pacific" they showed the amtracks coming out into the sun from the dark belly of the LST's. Almost like they were being born. When I saw that I said "they got it" It was very symbolic of them being born to a new life unlike what they knew before. For some the new life was minutes, for others it was for years. Just a matter of luck.

    I was once in a library in Baton Rouge that shall remain nameless, and I asked the Librarian where the card catalog was, and she said “I don’t know what that is”
