Publisher's Description

This book contains a true autobiographical story from the memory of a young United States Marine, who was both a depression baby and blessed to survive World War II. As the author points out, this largest of all wars came quickly to its bloody end when President Harry Truman authorized dropping two A-bombs on Japan to force its surrender. Recounting his days as a boot-camp Private to engagements and court-martial at Saipan, to the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, and on to the occupation of Japan, Doss tells us what World War II was like and how he grew to respect the courage and patriotism of his fellow Americans. The author also reminds us that President Truman's strategic decision to drop the A-bombs created a compelling reason for avoiding more global wars. Doss's story reminds us of many other implications, both personal and societal, including especially why war can be a win-win proposition when cultural differences and diplomacy fail to sustain peace. What Readers are Saying: "What a meaningful book about an important but too often forgotten part of 20th Century history." Quincy M. Hodge, Parent Commander, U. S. Navy (Retired) Senior Consultant, The Frontline Group "This book is a very real account of the wonder and horror our young men and women experienced where they left home in their youth and faced the reality of war in new, strange, and faraway places. They grew up fast." Charles W. Hall, Parent and Grandparent Partner, Fulbright & Jaworski Law Firm
