Full audio book can be found below on YouTube.  I've read it.  It's an excellent book.  I truly believe that it is  the best personal account of a soldier's, or in the case a marine's, experiences in combat.  Gritty.

If you want to read it and cannot find it at your local library, Amazon has it.

Hey Gomer, nice link, i had a listen.
Although for truely gritty im affraid i have to say, you have to go eastfront. Nothing beats diary accounts of Germans breaking out of a kessel on foot under fire, running from russian tanks.

Thanks for the links Redbad.  I've subscribed to those channels and will give them a listen soon.  The German language one will help me with my language learning so that's a cool fringe benefit.
