About the Author:

George Lince lives in Rome, New York.

From Library Journal:

Lince aims to write a memoir about an idealistic young Marine's brutal wartime experience: his terror and disillusionment in combat, followed by his disappointment at the indifference of his friends, family, and nation. Instead of honest angst, however, the author treats the reader to his phenomenal recall of every petty grievance, complaint, and gripe he had about World War II. His comrades in battle turn out to be thieving and deceitful, his father remote, and his girlfriend uncaring. He seems especially aggrieved that there were no parades or special honors for Marine PFC George Lince at his homecoming. His book is not about genuine suffering but just common whining, carefully nurtured for 50 years. The narrative is also padded with lengthy passages from magazine articles and other books. Not recommended.?Raymond L. Puffer, U.S. Air Force History Prog., Edwards AFB, Cal.
