Well-written but far too graphic and has excessive profanity
This was very well-written and the story was a tribute to those who suffer so much for the rest of the world's freedom.
However, it contained too much detail. It was very graphic, as the reality of this war truly is, but way too much for the average person to digest.
I know many feel they have to resort to profanity -probably not totally educated in a vocabulary that can express themselves without it - but the use of profanity by the main character was excessive, especially since he is suppose to be an educated officer.
A truly great writer can allude to these situations without dragging the reader down to that level.
I won this book and I would have appreciated it as a great work had it not been so foul. It was generous to offer it for the giveaway but I will not be recommending it nor purchasing any further works of Tom Young because of the above reasons.
