About the Author

Dr. Sid Phillips, a Guadalcanal Marine, was born Sept 2, 1924, and enlisted in the USMC the day after Pearl Harbor. Passing beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, he departed his land a nervous seventeen-year-old. Two years later, when he kissed the docks in San Diego, he had come home a hero. Together Sid and his brothers in the legendary 1st Marine Division won the first epic victory of the war, saved Australia, and stopped the Japanese juggernaut in the Pacific. Sid and his sister, Katherine, have become internationally known after their notable roles in Ken Burns' documentary The War and the Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg/Gary Goetzman HBO miniseries, The Pacific. He passed away in 2015.

Reviews

"For anyone who cares about the human dimension of war--its cost and its heroism--Sid Phillip's book is a must read."--Ken Burns, Emmy award-winning filmmaker of The War

"We have an extraordinary opportunity now to recognize perhaps THE key player, if there is one, if there's ONLY one key player, he might be at the very top of the pyramid... a native of Mobile, Alabama, a man who appears over and over in our series... Dr. Sid Phillips."--Tom Hanks, Executive Producer, The Pacific "Like his life-long friend, Eugene Sledge, Sid Phillips speaks to us in these enchanting memoirs in his natural voice, engaging and modest, full of insight and intelligence, but ever alert to the lighter side of even the most dismal human circumstances. And like any great story teller, he leaves you wishing to hear a great deal more."--Richard B. Frank, author of Guadalcanal: The Definitive Account of the Landmark Battle
