I appreciate the effort to congradulate men who dare to walk the razors edge for a living, as this book has done. Well written, detailed and real enough to cause some in the military to squirm. The journalistic character of the book exposes raw truths about whether or not brave men needed to die. The light hearted stuff is welcome too. The adventurous, bigger than life PJs with thier moxy and devil may care attitude come through in living color. Great book. Great read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
