I purchased this book because of Roque's and Marion's recommendations. It is a big thick hardcover book at a fair price of around $20, including shipping.

 

I just love this guy's sense of humor. He throws these little bits of humor here and there.

 

"No one ever knew whether the French police no longer needed asistance or whether the Platoon was badly needed back at the garrison to reinforce the Battalion in its efforts to put down insurgent insects in their attempts to regain control of the Fort. " pg 137.

Here's another good one... ;)

 

"To place more pickles in the pudding, some untrained replacements had never fired a rifle and were without entrenching tools (the infantry man's personal bulldozer) needed to dig foxholes or gun emplacements."

 

Pickles in the pudding...... yuck!!

 

This guy must have been quite a character.

Yep! I almost had a heart attack when I first looked for it. But then Rocky gave me Jerry Gordon's email and I bought it directly from him and it was $23 with shipping. I may still have that email in my inbox. I'll check for it and report back.

Here's another good one from page 285.

 

"The Arabs didn't appear overjoyed to have the Americans for guests, but didn't seem to mind their using the bathhouse. Probably didn't know they had one as most of them didn't appear to have had the recent pleasure of putting water on themselves intentionally."
