See E.B. Sledge's story in the HBO miniseries The Pacific! China Marine is the extraordinary sequel to E.B. Sledge's memoir, With the Old Breed, which remains the most powerful and moving account of the U.S. Marines in World War II. Sledge continues his story where With the Old Breed left off and recounts the compelling conclusion of his Marine career. After Japan's surrender in 1945, Sledge and his company were sent to China to maintain order and to calm the seething cauldron of political and ideological unrest created by opposing factions. His regiment was the first Marine unit to return to the ancient city of Peiping (now Beijing) where they witnessed the last of old China and the rise of the Communist state. Sledge also recounts the difficulty of returning to his hometown of Mobile, Alabama, and resuming civilian life while haunted by shadows of close combat. Through the discipline of writing and the study of biology, he shows how he came to terms with the terrifying memories that had plagued him for years. Poignant and compelling, China Marine provides a frank depiction of the real costs of war, emotional and psychological as well as physical, and reveals the enduring bond that develops between men who face the horrors of war.… (mais)

It is really the closing chapters to "With the Old Breed". Covering Sledge's time immediately after the war ended in Okinawa, then as part of the Marine's occupation force in China - which for me make an interesting counter point to the experiences of Joseph Needham in China during WW2. THe book is once again written from a very personal view point and does not try to cover the bigger picture. THe final part of the book recounts briefly his return home and settling back into civilian life. ( )

A very short postscript to Sledge's account of the battles of Peleliu and Okinawa, it deals with his deployment to Beijing as part of the US effort to both disarm and disband the Japanese forces still in China and to install Chiang Kai-shek's weak national army in Northern China. The first task was surprisingly easy, giving Sledge lots of free time to explore the marvels of China. The second task less so. The Americans even used the hated Japanese troops to fight against the Communists, which should have given them a hint that they were betting on the losing team.

Sledge, however, remained mostly uninterested in the big picture; his observations concern the people around him and the people he meets. This is both a strength and a weakness of the book. As good as he is on the small scale, his stoic acceptance of the status quo makes this a strange book, a look back in time, without reflecting on the profound changes that happened since. ( )
