Riassunto: A young and naive American country boy joined the Marine Corps to “. . . find a lot of glory . . .” and instead found himself engaged in the bloody WWII Battle of Okinawa as an elite scout/sniper. No glory would be found. In A Handsome Guy, Jack Dolan and his friend Frank Moody detail the horrifying experiences that made them wounded war heros of the finest kind. They tell a story of combat as it truly was in the Pacific War.For nearly sixty years, Jack Dolan would give only sanitized versions of his life in the War’s last great battle. Here, for the first time, is the real narrative of life and death in the last battle of the war. Shocking, and sometimes even perversely funny, these two former Marines reveal a time of life that was a three-month brush with death.President Harry Truman was convinced by the unbelievable casualty rates for both sides on Okinawa, to drop the Atomic Bomb on Japan.
