    This book is real -- so real that you would rethink all the war movies you have watched -- including the HBO's The Pacific, where I got the name of this book. However, this is not my first Robert Leckie's book. I have read his Conflict: The History of the Korean War: 1950-1953. There is no glorious battle scene nor heroic deed in this book. It more of an observer and his reflections, day in and day out during some of the toughest battle environment (I would not say "battle") in the Pacific. It's a worthy good reading.
