I couldn’t finish and leave this book behind without saying some words about it. In short, without question, “22 on Peleliu” is one of my favourite books by an American Marine who served and fought in the Pacific in WW2. “Helmet for my pillow” and “With the old breed” are amazing in their own right, but as the author of “22 on Peleliu” is IN FACT an Old Breed marine himself, I found his recounting and telling of not only the battles he fought in and training he received but his PRE-WAR time growing up in the 1930s America and then his POST-WAR exploits and stories to be completely captivating and exciting to listen to/read. George Peto is without a doubt one of the most experienced Marines to write about the subject and his first hand account and was one of the longest living as well. I hope you enjoy this, Part 2 of Episode 150: WW2 and the marines.
