will_perkins0033 One of the best books I've ever read. It shows the Marine has been putting with the same bullshit for generations. #WithTheOldBreed #WWII #EBSLEDGE #Sledgehammer #Mortars #Peleliu #Okinawa #Marines #RememberThoseWhoCameBeforeUs 7d

m_ashleen Ran 7 miles, the most I have run since December when I hurt my knee. Now enjoying an #epsomsalt #bubblebath and reading this amazing book, thinking about how lucky we are that our #military continues to defend this great nation. Happy #4thofJuly and #staysafe

garrettbragg I've been on a bit of reading spree lately, mostly on the topic of the pacific theater. I reread #withtheoldbreed for about the 3rd time. I figured if I read that, I had to read the other half #helmetformypillow . Both are incredible accounts of the war in the pacific, and led to my third book #untoldstories of the pacific. One thing that was apparent through all was the marines love for the M1. Being an owner of one myself, it still amazes me that a 70+ year old rifle can still go eye to eye, sometimes even outshoot most modern rifles. After reading the pacific, you can't help but wonder what stories these rifles could tell. I think my next topic will be boys in the bombers, unless you guys have any other "must reads" concerning the pacific theater. #wwii #ww2 #rifle #gun #garand #m1garand #milsurp #history 3mon
  •   garrettbragg @benbrez1 just read the sample, looks great! 3mon
  •   cnoble120th Roscoe "Rocky" Blunt was labeled a coward and fraud by his peers. Shame but avoid him at all costs. Ray Gantter, on the other hand, is an amazing man and soldier. 3mon

  •   historyhunter89 I've read #withtheoldbreed at least 3 times and think that its the best first person account of combat ever written. The book was my companion both times that I went to Peleliu and I tried to follow the author's footsteps as best I could @garrettbragg 2w
  •   garrettbragg I've read it three times too, and probably will read it countless times again! I agree, it's a must read for anyone interested in wwii, as no other book does as good of a job at making the reader feel some of what they went through. 2w
