Hailed as “one of the finest memoirs to emerge from any war” by acclaimed author Paul Fussell, With the Old Breed: At Peleui and Okinawa remains the most powerful and moving account of the US Marines in World War II.

In China Marine, his long-awaited sequel, E B Sledge continues his story where With the Old Breed left off and recounts the compelling conclusion of his Marine career.

After Japan's surrender in 1945, Sledge and his company were sent to China to maintain order and to calm the seething cauldron of political and ideological unrest created by opposing factions.

His regiment was the first Marine unit to return to the ancient city of Peiping (now Beijing) where they witnessed the last of old China and the rise of the Communist state.

He also recounts the difficulty of returning to his hometown of Mobile, Alabama, and resuming civilian life while haunted by shadows of close combat.

Through the discipline of writing and the study of biology, Sledge shows how he came to terms with the terrifying memories that had plagued him for years.

Poignant and compelling, China Marine provides a frank depiction of the real costs of war, emotional and psychological as well as physical, and reveals the enduring bond that develops between men who face the horrors of war.

China Marine by E B Sledge is a 2002 first edition published by Oxford University Press, Oxford, England. It is a brand-new 167-page 13.5x20.5cm card soft cover with a map and a series of photographs from the author's service days in China.

It is a fascinating book, subtitled An Infantryman's Life After World War II.

This work follows on from Sledge’s widely acclaimed classic WWII memoir With the Old Breed: At Peleui and Okinawa, a copy of which we sold recently.
