“One Marine’s deeply personal account of the cold realities of combat.” —John H. Briggs, Major, United States Army, Retired

“I felt informed, moved and, ultimately, encouraged.” — David J. Hogan, editor-in-chief and contributing writer, The Holocaust Chronicle

“We cannot possibly comprehend the battlefield terror that changed their inner being forever. ‘War is Personal’ helps us to better understand” — Lt. Col. Jaime Parent, USAF, author of Moving Past PTSD

The Invasion of Okinawa was one of the bloodiest battles of WWII Pacific. Roy Wilkes, Private, USMC was unfortunate enough to have a front-row seat. True, gripping stories and pictures reveal the mind, heart, and soul of a fighting WWII Marine.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK:
“The grim reaper missed me. The dumb bastard had a close-up swing at me on six different occasions—and missed.”

“The casualties were monumental. Trucks were coming down the lines with Marines piled like cordwood. They put ponchos over ’em, but you could see all these feet dangling out. It was like a conveyor belt. We were going up and they were coming back. The only difference is we were alive—and they were dead.”

“Continuous rain dampened the soul. The low, thick dark clouds made sure God didn’t see. What happened here was a secret from Him. God was busy someplace else. So this part of His Universe went insane.”
