Somewhat predictable and melodramatic, but nevertheless enjoyable. Emotionally evocative for folks who still appreciate courage and honor.

This is a fast-moving story with a great backdrop of WWII events. It follows the victories of North Africa and the invasion of Sicily. The battle descriptions are exciting, and spun in is a thread of romance. Excellent read.
