A short account of what it was like to fight the Japanese in the jungles of the Pacific islands

This short book is but one example of the millions of books that could have been written by American servicemen in the Pacific theatre during World War II. Cone was a radio operator in the 947th Field Artillery Battery and fought in New Guinea and the Philippines in the latter part of the war. His accounts are not extremely memorable, it is just a description of being in a group where your job is to kill people and frequently some of the people in your group are killed or wounded. In many ways it is a workaday account of what it was like to fight the Japanese in the jungles of the Pacific islands.
One of many personal accounts of action in the greatest war, this book is simultaneously significant and routine, but only because there were so many such stories.
