—Tim Russert, NBC's Meet the Press
"His evocation of their lives and his lost youth is most moving, and so, too, are his notes on the passing of former comrades... Graceful, even elegant, and always eloquent tribute to men at arms in a war that, in a way, never ended."

A job well-done, with confusing streams of flashbacks, the only hitch being the misspelling of 'his Austrian wife ...' in the third paragraph from the top of page 106. Shouldn't it have read, 'Australian'?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book was very hard to get into. I have read many other Historical War Memoirs, some that have flowed and been easy to get into. Others that are really Herky jerky. This was one of those books that fails to really pull you in. It jumps all around giving a brief view of modern or historical information about someone, then jumps into battle information for a few pages. When the next chapter begins, you are back reading more about something else. Everyone has their own reading style. Myself, I like to read background info about people, then read about the issue (detailed info about the war), then finish up with Modern day details and what is happening.Was this review helpful?

When you read this book you get a flavor for what it was like to willingly risk your life in a conflict thousands of miles from home. Every young man should read this before they enlist in the Marines.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
