Eugene B. Sledge diente als Soldat im 3. Bataillon, 5. Kompanie der berühmten 1. US-Marineinfanteriedivision – der ältesten, ruhmreichsten und größten aktiven Division des US Marine Corps. Im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde der 20-Jährige an die Front im Pazifik geschickt, wo er an den Gefechten der amerikanischen Armee gegen die Japaner um Peleliu und Okinawa teilnahm. In diesem Buch beschreibt Sledge auf klare und erschütternd nüchterne Weise die Erfahrungen eines Marines an der Front im Pazifik. Die Grausamkeit und Brutalität des Krieges sind darin ebenso festgehalten wie das Gefühl aufrichtiger Kameradschaft, schonungslose Schilderungen wüster Kämpfe sowie rührende Momentaufnahmen am Rande des Geschehens. Ein einzigartiges Dokument des Schreckens und ein weltbekannter Klassiker der Kriegsliteratur.
