After watching "The Pacific" many times and reading all the smaller books about the 1st Marine Division I finally splurged and bought a first edition copy of "The Old Breed" (McMillan).
I'm only just getting into it, but I'm enjoying it. It's so far got a lot of interesting facts I never knew, for example, they had barely more than one month from the time they were ordered to invade Guadalcanal to the invasion date. That they managed that is in itself is an amazing accomplishment.
It's loaded with amusing anecdotes too.
Did anybody else enjoy it?
