alicecl93 March/April read! Can't even begin to say how much I loved this book!! It's an absolute must read for any american! Definitely very difficult subject matter (I cried multiple times) ... But reading the horror that this man and so many others went through for our country makes me feel extremely thankful and blessed! #WithTheOldBreed #EugeneSledge Seriously read it! 1w

evan_not_peters Wasn't feeling too well today so I stayed home and finished my first round of PTO reading. Definitely the 4 best books I've read in my life, and they're free to borrow if anyone wants a good read. #ww2 #pacifictheatre #redbloodblacksand #battlegroundpacific #helmetformypillow #withtheoldbreed 3mon

of_men_and_war With the Old Breed ••• Eugene Sledge ••• page 74 -

To me, artillery was an invention of hell.
The onrushing whistle and scream of the big steel package of destruction was the pinnacle of violent fury and the embodiment of pent-up evil.
It was the essence of violence and of man’s inhumanity to man.
I developed a passionate hatred for shells.
To be killed by a bullet seemed so clean and surgical.
But shells would not only tear and rip the body, they tortured one’s mind almost beyond the brink of sanity.
After each shell I was wrung out, limp and exhausted. -
