Author: R.V. Burgin, Bill Marvel
The true story of R.V. Burgin, the real-life World War II Marine Corps hero featured in HBO®'s The Pacific. “Read his story and marvel at the man...and those like him.”—Tom Hanks When a young Texan named R.V. Burgin joined the Marines 1942, he never imagined what was waiting for him a world away in the Pacific. There, amid steamy jungles, he encountered a ferocious and desperate enemy in the Japanese, engaging them in some of the most grueling and deadly fights of the war. In this remarkable memoir, Burgin reveals his life as a special breed of Marine. Schooled by veterans who had endured the cauldron of Guadalcanal, Burgin’s company soon confronted snipers, repulsed jungle ambushes, encountered abandoned corpses of hara-kiri victims, and warded off howling banzai attacks as they island-hopped from one bloody battle to the next. In his two years at war, Burgin rose from a green private to a seasoned sergeant, fighting from New Britain through Peleliu and on to Okinawa, where he earned a Bronze Star for valor. With unforgettable drama and an understated elegance, Burgin’s gripping narrative stands alongside those of classic Pacific chroniclers like Robert Leckie and Eugene Sledge—indeed, Burgin was even Sledge’s platoon sergeant. Here is a deeply moving account of World War II, bringing to life the hell that was the Pacific War.

From the drawing to the finished work. Under the learned guidance of Franc?ois Macé de Lépinay, it is now possible for the first time to reconstruct the creative trajectory of Giovan Battista Salvi, known as Sassoferrato. Living in the Rome of the baroque era but far away from the tumult of the art world, he worked with the spirit of a craftsman intent above all on creating the devotional images that earned him the title of 'pictor virginum'.0The studies presented here shed light on how Sassoferrato developed his unmistakable style, starting on the local scene and then moving to the Eternal City, where he was in close contact with Domenichino, on the patrons he served with his brush, and on the influence of his work in the 19th century on the Purists and Nazarenes. The resulting image is of an artist who followed the example of Raphael with extraordinary consistency to attain the idealization expressed even in his few portraits through a carefully studied approach, already clearly evident in the preparatory studies, as far removed from baroque theatricality as it is from Caravaggesque naturalism.00Exhibition: Palazzo degli Scalzi, Sassoferrato (Ancona), Italy (17.06.-05.11.2017).
