Reader's note

This book focuses on the experiences of a fourteen-man platoon stationed on a Japanese-held island in the South Pacific during World War II, and written in a journalistic style, it tells the moving story of the soldiers' struggle to retain a sense of dignity amidst the horror of warfare. The Naked and the Dead interrogates ideas of masculinity and comradeship in the arena of military conflict. This unique read would be good for anyone interested in history and the effects of war. The characters in this book are fictional.
