I'm Staying with My Boys is the firsthand look inside the life of one of the greatest heroes of the Greatest Generation. Sgt. John Basilone held off 3,000 Japanese troops at Guadalcanal after his 15-member unit was reduced to three men. At Iwo Jima, he single-handedly destroyed an enemy blockhouse, allowing his unit to capture an airfield. Minutes later he was killed by an enemy artillery round. He was the only Marine in World War II to have received the Medal of Honor, the Navy Cross, and a Purple Heart and is arguably the most famous Marine of all time.

I'm Staying with My Boys is the only family-authorized biography of Basilone, and it features photographs never before published. Distinctive among military biographies, the story is told in first person, allowing readers to experience his transformation, forged in the horrors of battle, from aimless youth to war hero known as "Manila John".

Review from our founder, Tracy Della Vecchia
I was fortunate to be able to read this book as I was watched the HBO mini-series, The Pacific. As a Marine parent, I have become quite a history buff and am particularly fond of Marine Corps history (imagine that!). This book was one I didn't want to put down, and only did so when forced to.  It was interesting to read it at the same time as watching The Pacific, but is so well-written you'll enjoy it even beyond The Pacific, and even if you've not seen the mini-series. For those of you who want to know more about Marine Corps history, and this amazing hero of World War II, this book will give you everything you're looking for, including tears and cheers.
