helmet for my pillow was written by Robert Leckie , an ex sports journaist who joined the us marines and went to fight in the pacific war of ww2. the story has been used as part of the hbo tv show the pacific produced by tom hanks and steven speilburg. after watching the show i decided to get hold of a copy of the book and i must say ive enjoyed the book so much more than watching the show (not that the show is bad its far from it).
This is the first war book ive ever read (not counting lord of the rings) i must say it has given me not only repsect for the troops and what they did for theire counrty, but also yet again i'm amazed just how crule humans can be towards each other.
on the whole i would say it's a book worth reading.

" Helmet for my pillow " ey ?... Books about the war aren't really my cup of tea but if I happen to run into it I'll certainly give it a try..
The way you describe it it's sounds very moving... Thanx Marius
