"Helmet for My Pillow" is the personal narrative written by World War II United States Marine Corps veteran, author, and military historian Robert Leckie.

This was extra reading for Randy Roberts' WWII class at Purdue. (I was T/A one year.)

Joseph Plumb Martin, a young man raised by his grandparents, left home at age 15 to serve in the Continental Army. He fought alongside important people and witnessed historic battles, chronicling them in his 1830 book, "Memoir of a Revolutionary Soldier: The Narrative of Joseph Plumb Martin." The bitching, complaining, and WTF level is very similar to what I heard in 20 years in the USN.

Golly, aren't you clever.

Do you really think that those with an abiding interest in the war in the Pacific are a bunch of unread dolts who need your gentle guidance because you can produce some sort of video?
