    A Great Read - War Seen from the Enlisted Man's Viewpoint

    This book is among my all time favorites. Not a story of great battles, and momentous military strategy, but rather the way a small part of the WWII Burma campaign looked to an ordinary foot soldier. Fraser manages to bring his gift for story telling and dialog to a gripping non-fiction war story. You also get a very good perspective on how the men who fought in WWII view the way modern "historians" are revising their actions, thoughts and motives.
