RV Burgin was the suad leader of Eugene Sledge the Marine infantryman who wrote With the Old Breed and China Marine when I read Sledge s memoir his admiration for Burgin was striking Reading Burgin s account of the same history it s clear that respect was mutual At the same time Burgin was a very different kind of person While Sledge fought with courage and distinction but was deeply disturbed by having to kill people and by seeing others killed around him Burgin while a good and decent person fought eually well but adjusted comparatively easily and was less haunted afterward though his war followed him home too It s a good illustration of the varied impact of combat and other traumatic situations on different people without that being a reflection on their bravery character or strength

Islands of the Damned is the story of RV Burgin an American Marine and his time serving in the Pacific Theater in World War II And that story itself is uite compelling He saw action in some of the bloodiest battles of the war survived and came home to marry his Australian love However the execution of this book leaves much to be desired I hesitate to even call this work a memoir for it s so plainly obvious that Burgin himself did not write it Burgin merely told writer Bill Marvel his story and then the latter compiled that into a narrative from Burgin s point of view This is not an editorial choice I can criticise in and of itself It s uite common especially when the subject is not a writer But what arises from this is a lack of rawness The incredible life of a man is muddled down to miluetoast retelling lacking any flavor or heart I can t help but see Islands of the Damned for what it so clearly is a uick attempt to capitalize on the experiences of a man and to coincide with the release of HBO s The Pacific miniseries Burgin s story needed to be heard this book was not the way to tell it To have dinner with Burgin and listen to him tell his story would ve been an incredible experience To read Bill Marvel tell the story he heard less so Islands of the Damned fails to get at the heart of Burgin s experience There are plenty of anecdotes that show you the hell of combat and the bonds it forges but it all feels surface level The depth that comes out of Robert Leckie or Eugene Sledge s work is absent here Being his suad leader in the war Burgin references Sledge s With the Old Breed often At times I liked this at other times it felt like Islands of the Damned was a companion piece to Sledge s memoir rather than its own standalone work Still Islands of the Damned is a good war memoir It should be read by those with interest in the war fans of The Pacific or those like me who got it for cheap at their local bookstore It s a very easy read which is a problem It needed depth to fully showcase and tell the horrors that were just shallowly depicted Read this book but read Robert Leckie and Eugene Sledge first
