Synopsis

Too Young the Heroes A World War II Marine's Account of Facing a Veteran Enemy at Guadalcanal, the Solomons and Okinawa by George Lince

Right after Pearl Harbor, the author joined the Marines at 17. After boot camp, he went to the First Marine Division, taking part in some of the bloodiest fighting in the Pacific, including the landing on Okinawa where he was wounded. The author and others fought under terrible conditions, yet they persevered. This is the author's story of combat and of growing up.
