    Completes the Jeff Shaara WWII trilogy

    Some plot lines or story threads are left incomplete. Balanced view of each side of the war, and discussed from the senior strategists as well as the GI's in the foxholes. Would have been interesting and even more balanced to have had the same foxhole-level story on the German side.

    I bought this book for my dad for Christmas

    We are huge Jeff Shaara fans, and my husband loved this book. My dad is a WWII vet (although of the South Pacific, in the Navy), and we went to a book-signing event at our local Barnes & Noble and had Mr. Shaara inscribe a personal message. Dad read it before New Year's!

    Jeff Shaara picked up where his dad left off in his focusing on small details of real wars and fleshing out real people using imagined encounters with fictional ones. I feel he's easily as talented as his father was. Highly recommended.

    No Less Than Victory-another winner for Shaara

    As always, Jeff Shaara delivers yet another war novel that seems to reach out and grab you on a personal level. His style of character presentation puts you in the foxhole, tank, bomber or staff room and leaves you there to participate and feel the same frustration, fear, sadness, cold, sweat and other myriad senses and emotions as each highlighted character. The history is accurate, and the experiences may be extrapolated, but they are as real and raw as the human experience in life and death situations can be without actually being there. After you have read this book, or any of his novels, pick one character and read just that character's sections. Then do that for each main character and re-read the whole thing. You'll be surprised to find many more details that were missed in the first reading and it intensifies the feel of each character's experience. At tha point, you have learned more than you think you have. War is history, and if more leaders understood it, ..........

    I Also Recommend:

    Very Good

    The third and final addition to the trilogy. Well written, moved along real well, adhered fairly close to the actual history. All three books are definitely worth buying and reading.
