really liked it
bookshelves: history, wwii
Read in April, 2008

I read this in preparation to reading a biography of the author. This is part of an effort to get a "feel" for world war II from the point of view of the ordinary soldier. If you are interested in this perspective, this is a good book.

I found it interesting that I didn't "get" all the cartoons Mauldin included here. Even with the written narrative, I think I am too far removed. Nonetheless, I do understand the perspective of the infantry soldier better now.
