Merriam Press World War 2 Memoir Series. Seventh Edition 2017. The late George Wickersham's World War II memoir of service as a U.S. Navy chaplain with the 8th Marine Regiment training on Saipan for the invasion of Okinawa, the Okinawa campaign, and the occupation of Japan, coming ashore at Nagasaki which was still smoldering from the atom bomb, and being stationed in Kyushu. It is believed that no other Marine Corps chaplain has ever written a full-length book about his wartime experiences, making this work a very important contribution to the growing literature of the war. This is one of the best written, most eloquent accounts of a man off to war, from the day he joins to the day he comes home. 45 photos.
