Yesterday while doing some research about Eugene B. Sledge, I found out that he wrote a second book about his experiences after the Battle of Okinawa. The book is entitled “China Marine: an infantryman’s life after World War II” and it is a wonderful read so far.  I also stumbled onto a talk that Sledge gave in 1994 about his experiences in combat and it gives us all a glimpse into his wit, his intelligence and his humanity.

We’ll talk about Eugene Sledge.
