Summary
Best known for his ambitious novels, Styron also created personal but no less powerful tales based on his real-life experiences as a U.S. Marine. This book collects five of these meticulously rendered narratives, one published here for the first time, bringing to life the drama, inhumanity, absurdity, and heroism that forever changed the men who served in the Marine Corps.--From publisher description
