Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent read! Written in Mailer's journalistic prose, you'll feel like you're in this platoon as you read this excellent novel written when Mailer was only twenty-four! Witness the "souvenir hunt" as Martinez, the platoon's point-man, bashes in a decaying Japanese soldier's skull to extract fallen gold teeth he could later pawn. Maniftest Destiny gone haywire. This book is fantastic and an ideal introduction to the works of Norman Mailer. Buy it!
