From the back of the book:
THE TRUE STORY OF SOME OF THE MOST DEVASTATING BATTLES OF THE PACIFIC, HELMET FOR MY PILLOW BRINGS YOU AS CLOSE TO THE MUD, BLOOD, AND HORROR OF WAR AS IT IS SAFE TO COME.
Robert Leckie served with 1st Marine division against an enemy determined to fight to the last man. This is an unsentimental account of how real warriors are made, fight, and all too often die in the defence of their country. From boot camp to the brutality of the front line, to the rowdy exhilaration of Marines on leave, Leckie tells in vivid detail of the horror and sacrifice of war when victory can only be measured inch by bloody inch.
Robert Leckie's memoir is part of the real-life basis for HBO's The Pacific. Above, James Badge Dale plays Robert Leckie.
