This is not for the faint of heart. Because Harry Neely is who he is, and has been through what he has been through, this tells the raw unvarnished truth of the early 1940s, the dirty ugly truth about war. It reveals the hatred that is instilled into troops before battle. It reveals the brutality that is released in war.

This is also about love, the unconditional love that a man displays when he retrieves the wounded under fire, or shares a poncho with a wet Marine, or saddles up and moves out to stop a Japanese counteroffensive.

This is one man’s war as seen by one man and told by one man. It is also every man’s war in one way or another. If your brother, father, grandfather, uncle or friend fought as a combatant in World War II, read this and then you will know.

From boot camp, to the invasions of Kwajalein, Guam and Okinawa, with a rest stop between invasions at Guadalcanal, this is Harry's war.
