    That's two words, and they don't contribute much to the discussion.

    You've been posting a few of these sorts of comments, but it would be better if you offered more considered and better explained opinions.

    With the Old Breed is by far one of the best war books (probably one of the best books in general, too) I've ever read. Sledge was traumatized from the war - Notice the copyright date...the first printing came out in 1981, WAY after most of the other WWII books because it took him so long to write down and publish everything that he went through. He kept detailed records in a bible throughout the war, which is how he was able to write such a detailed book decades later. Honestly, when I read this book, I told my girlfriend this book should be required reading for everyone in school. Why read ancient stuff like Julius Caeser when you could read something that is much more exciting and much more relevant to today's world? To respond to the person who mentioned about the cursing, Sledge doesn't actually write curses in the book but he does mention that Marines cursed. Would it really add much to just see curse words written throughout the book, especially when Sledge describes the horrible things that he experienced and saw.

    I wouldn't say that the character in The Pacific was much different but The Pacific glossed, changed or didn't mention a lot of the episodes in the book...The show was much less graphic than a lot of what Sledge described and I really wish The Pacific spent more time about Sledge's role at Okinawa.

    I also read China Marine, the sequel to With the Old Breed. It was pretty good but not nearly as good as With the Old Breed. In that book, I wish more time was spent on any kind of PTSD issues that Sledge had...it does mention it at the end but I would have liked to have read more about his struggle with the repurcussions of the war.
