The Flying Dutchmen is outstanding. The author covers the horrors of war from the soldier's point of view and not just the fighting but the daily woes as well. Suhrer made the characters Fernando and Eva Rosa come to life. Suhrer's talent for writing brings the events that the soldier went through so real that you feel like you are there. He brings the facts out about the 107th that were not widely known. I can't wait for more work from Suhrer!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Very Engaging Novel
The Flying Dutchmen is outstanding for scope and balance. The author shifts from the horrors of war to the tenderness of love letters between Fernando and his betrothed Eva, thus assuring your wanting to read more.Was this review helpful?

Mr. Suhrer has a talent for description, so evocative that you sense the "brutally hot sun and biting mosquitoes" and your belly feels empty when the soldiers once again have only coffee to keep them going for the day.
A very fine first novel. Its author is rich in talent and promise. I look forward to a second book.
