Reviews

Praise for Islands of the Damned "R.V. Burgin is one of those American boys who became a Marine--no small feat. He then went across the Pacific, returning home to Jewett, Texas only after helping to save the world. Read his story and marvel at the man...and those like him."--Tom Hanks, Oscar-winning Actor and Star of Saving Private Ryan, Executive Producer of Band of Brothers and The Pacific "An honest, straightforward memoir by an honest, straightforward man. Burgin has written an unforgettable, moving description of his experiences as an infantry Marine, from New Britain to Okinawa. The result is a classic combat account. I highly recommend this book."--John C. McManus, Author of The Dead and Those About to Die and September Hope "[A] well-written, excellently detailed personal narrative...Time is thinning the ranks of America's Pacific War veterans. But Islands of the Damned is a taut, engrossing, haunting book that will help keep their accomplishments and enormous sacrifices alive."--Dallas Morning News
