Stephen lays this out beautifully. He kept me in grossed throughout the entire book and kept to the facts.
G-Day, Rendezvous with Eagles gives a great, and slightly humorous, first-hand account of the day-to-day (and not so day-to-day) activities of an Army soldier in Desert Storm. It incorporates societal and political events from the late '80s/early '90s and ties them into today's current events, and reflects on the outcome of the war given the current U.S. involvement overseas. I would recommend it for soldiers facing their first deployment, their families, or anyone that wants to know more about the U.S. involvement in Desert Storm/Desert Shield.
WOW!!!!! Awesome first hand account of the initial days of Desert Storm. Felt every emotional moment as if I were there. Hopefully more books will be coming from this great author!
G-Day, Rendezvous With Eagles was an engaging read. I read it straight through the first night I got the book. You will appreciate the authors attention to detail and first hand narrative. I especially enjoyed Mr Wiehes' forthright telling of the emotions experienced when in war. Mr Wiehes' telling of his time during Desert Shield,Desert Storm and the storied 101st are a compelling read. Don't miss out!!
