He brings forth a vivid picture of the ordeal he lived
James W. Johnston was born in Kentucky and has lived for most of his life in Wauneta, a small town in southwestern Nebraska.
"Johnston's account is deeply personal... [He] recounts his extensive combat service from the perspective of what he terms a 'flat-trajectory Marine,' that is, one who was constantly exposed to the direct fire of enemy weapons... He brings forth a vivid picture of the ordeal he lived - the brutality and terror of close combat, the anger and frustration of watching buddies die in extraordinarily ghastly fashion, the filth and mind-numbing weariness of an infantryman's existence." - Marine Corps Gazette _ " ... there is a great deal of value for serving personnel and officer cadets in [this] book[s]."-- The Wish Stream, Vol 54, Summer 2000
