Goodbye Darkness : A Memoir of the Pacific War

Goodbye Darkness : A Memoir of the Pacific War

Description

This emotional and honest novel recounts a young man's experiences during World War II and digs deep into what he and his fellow soldiers lived through during those dark times.
The nightmares began for William Manchester 23 years after WW II. In his dreams he lived with the recurring image of a battle-weary youth (himself), angrily demanding to know what had happened to the three decades since he had laid down his arms. To find out, Manchester visited those places in the Pacific where as a young Marine he fought the Japanese, and in this book examines his experiences in the line with his fellow soldiers (his brothers). He gives us an honest and unabashedly emotional account of his part in the war in the Pacific. The most moving memoir of combat on WW II that I have ever read. A testimony to the fortitude of man...a gripping, haunting, book. --William L. Shirer
