Another great signed Pacific War book!

Sid Phillips joined the Marines at age 17 and found himself fighting in the Pacific War on Guadalcanal as part of H-Company, 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines, 1st Marine Division (H-2-1), the same unit as Helmet for My Pillow author Robert Leckie. Sid also was lifelong friends with With the Old Breed author Eugene Sledge.

Now publically available for the first time, these are the humble and candid tales that Sid collected during his Pacific war odyssey from the bloody banks of the Tenaru to the romantic respite of Melbourne to the monsoon-soaked jungles of Cape Gloucester.
