    Highly Recommended

    Harold has done it again. Like a page torn from the headlines, Coyle brings modern warfare to his readers. Lt Nathan Dixon is the type of leader today's army is in desparate need. A leader who is not afraid to take charge when the need arises. Coyle manages to make Dixon to be both a fighting machine and a human. Battle description full of realism right down to where if the reader if is not sure where he is, he will be ducking for cover. Only problem with story was the abrupt ending. I I would have liked to have read Dixon's after action report on 3rd Platoon and 2dn Lt Reider. Other than that, great read looking forward to more.

    Outstanding Generational Sequal to his Great Earlier Novels

    Coyle is just the best. Not so long-winded at Clancy. Far more realistic plot than Cussler. Just as entertaining as either of the other two. In God's Children, Coyle weaves together a tale of the basic fighting unit of the United States Army. He shows war as it really is: Hell on Earth. He shows how the expectations of new commanders are often less that reality (Butter-Bar Syndrome). And he shows how any unit, given the proper motivation and leadership, can survive anything.

    Great Storytelling

    I picked up this novel after I started to get into Tom Clancy. I'm now interested in reading more of Harold Coyle's novels. This is a great story of a soldier's life, makes you wonder what'f really goin on in the world.

    A great novel about men and the cost of war.

    Harold Coyle has the uncanny ability to make you feel like you are on the lines and part of the story. His insight and honesty about the men and women of todays army is outstanding. This novel grips you and makes you read it to the end.

    Coyle's 'children' is childsplay to read.

    Where do I begin? with Bright star? Team Yankee? or all the wonderful stories Harold Coyle has brought to us through his books. His Latest 'Gods Children' is just another fine example of why you would want to have this man telling stories to your grandchildren while they sit on his knee. Heroics,personal sacrifice,the pride of wearing your countries uniform would be wonderful things to listen to as you sit around a roaring fire...I can just imagine the joy his own children must feel when it comes to story time before bed. 'Gods Children' is a fast paced, moving story of present time military operations in Slovakia. The real danger of sending our military into 'peace keeping' operations without a clearly defined purpose and the individual efforts of each soldier involved. As usual the story is focused around the 'people' and not fantastic tales of unrealistic situations or how one man saves the world. Coyle truly captures the realities of war and its effect on those involved...I have everybook this man has written and you should too! If you love Tom'll love Harold coyle.
