The Old Breed in ROGER BENDER BOOK REPORTS Posted November 24, 2018 That book is awesome. One of the best WWII books written. I liked it so much, I had to find a first edition myself. I actually found one that was signed personally by Eugene Sledge. I don't think there were that many books printed in the first edition, I think they are some what rare. Nobody ever thought that book would become part of a 10 part mini series.
