'' ''Please do not read this book unless you were young once. Some people never were, you know. Don't read it unless you recall your youth with fondness and nostalgia, because this is the story of youth, told by perhaps the least objective and least accurate of biographers - youth itself. In his own words, sometimes soaringly beautiful, often rash and unrealistic, but always with self-honesty, this youth gives his own pronouncement of the goodness of life, discovering first love and the horrors of war at one and the same time he deals with their confusing disparities as only optimism can. As described by a friend, 'He was a rough, tough Marine who dared to be gentle.' '' ''
