About the Author

Robert Leckie (1920-2001) served in the 1st Marine Division during World War II. After the war, he worked as a reporter for the Associated Press, the New York Journal American, the New York Daily News, and other newspapers. During his lifetime, he authored more than forty books on American war history, including March to Glory, The Battle for Iwo Jima, and The Wars of America: From 1600 to 1900.

John Allen Nelson's critically acclaimed roles on television's 24 and Vanished are among the highlights of his twenty-five-plus years as an actor, screenwriter, and film producer. As a narrator, he won an AudioFile Earphones Award for his reading of Zoo Story by Thomas French.

Reviews

"Helmet for My Pillow is a grand and epic prose poem. Robert Leckie's theme is the purely human experience of war in the Pacific, written in the graceful imagery of a human being who--somehow--survived."

-- "Tom Hanks"

"Nelson adds to the fun with perfect voices for the sergeants, the Australian girls, and Leckie's drunken friends. Nelson adapts to the author's short sentences, delivering them with the directness of a vintage newsreel announcer."
