Stump by Lindsey Larry Allen

Motivated by the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, champion swimmer Lee "Stump" Kelley is hell bent on becoming a Marine. His all consuming goal: To kill as many of the hated enemy as possible. Waylaid by a silver tongued Navy recruiter, he becomes a frogman instead. Lee and his team of frogmen are the first to hit the beach all over the Pacific, blowing up obstructions on a string of tropical islands. At Tacloban he receives a rude awakening. War may seem glorious and patriotic when sitting back home on your comfortable living room couch, but up close and personal it's blood and dying. And when he loses his two best friends in gruesome encounters, his whole belief system is challenged. Shaken to his very core and wanting to end it all, Lee has to suck it up and move on to Okinawa with what's left of his frogman team. There he becomes entangled in the Navy's costliest operation of the entire war. Barely surviving a fleet decimating typhoon, he is burned during the most frenzied kamikaze attack Japan ever musters. Shell-shocked and swaddled in gauze, Lee is sent to Guam to recuperate and prepare for the invasion of mainland Japan, a landing everyone has been dreading for months. When an admiral and his staff asks for his opinion on the impending operation, even though he's only a second class petty officer who has never seen a three-star before, "Stump" doesn't pull any punches. After taking a deep breath, he tells it like it is. Frankly, Admiral... Can we really allow the Japs to take a million of us with them Cause that's how many American lives it will cost us to march into Tokyo. And I know damn well, one of those lives is gonna be mine."
