A very, very, good book. It was another book that I was having trouble putting down. Some of the stories are unbeliveable. I can't say enough about this book. I would buy this book again.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is written as a series of vignettes for the various CMH winners, which follows the outline of events in the Second World War. This style makes it easy to read a chapter or two, put the book down, and then come back to it a couple of days later without losing your place in the storyline. CMH winners in both theatres of operation are covered equally. The brevity of the accounts is both a strength and weakness of the book. There were several CMH winners that I could have read an entire book about. The book generally serves to whet one's appetite for more stories of these heroes. I look forward to reading more on this extraordinary subject.
