There is almost to much going on in to many places to keep track of it all. I suspect it is a lot like real combat although I wouldn't know directly. While the author does a good job of cause and effect sometimes I suspect for the average non-military person there is too much exposition explaining it all. For example, the author explains what is happening in 1 location on both sides of the battle. He then goes on to explain intimate details of say a tank because knowledge of the tank is critical to understanding the battle. He might take 1 page to describe the tank when the battle itself is only 1 page itself. You get so engrossed in the tank details your come up for air and say "Huh, why are they fighting?" - Don't get me wrong this is an excellent book and I couldn't put it down. David Weber does the same thing and I bought all his books too! The 1 other thing is there are songs all soldiers sing: marching songs, fighting songs, etc. Keeping with the theme that this is a country whose primary language is Spanish the songs are usually written IN Spanish. Since I don't understand the language I can't read what they are supposed to be singing because of course the book is in English. Not really a big deal because you can easily skip over the songs. However, it would be nice to know what the words were.
