    gut wrenching

    This book brought these men to life in a very personal and professional manner. Having read this book I feel that I know who these men were. This book lets one imagine how it was on that coral rock. Mr. Sloan tells the story of tragedy of a battle that never should have taken place.

    THIS BOOK SHOULD BE MADE INTO A MOVIE.

    This is an excellent book for those who enjoy reading about true events in WWII history. I rate this book as one of my all time favorites along with band of brothers. This book should definitly be made into a movie, like the book ghost soldiers was made into the motion picture the great raid.

    Well worth reading

    This is a terrific book on a battle that is not grouped along with Iwa Jima, Okinawa or Midway. This book accomplishes in telling the heroic valor the Marines displayed at Peleliu, which preceded the famous battle at Okinawa. I was especially moved by the courage and heroism displayed by the African American Marines. If you've read and loved 'Flags of our Fathers', 'Ghost Soldiers' or 'The Longest Winter' read this book.
