An important addition to World War I history Mar 7, 2008
While I have read extensively about World War II, my knowledge of World War I was limited. Now I have come to realize the immensity and horror of that great conflict. It is apparent Mr. Little has researched this conflict extensively, and has skillfully woven that research into an interesting and poignant story. His descriptions of the bloody trench warfare and the effects of artillery and the terrible destruction of human life are graphic and chilling. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends who are history buffs, and to the history teachers at the high school where I work.
Great Histroy and a Good Human Story May 1, 2004
One Step From Glory is a wonderful novel that tells a great story about an important time in our nation's history. The author presents a well-researched portrait of the people and events of 'The Great War'. Mr. Little writes almost as if he has first-hand experiences or perhaps those of a close friend or family member as he describes the events of war and emotions of the participants. I heartily recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys the interactions between history and its human participants.

Very interesting and informative. Brings WWI to life. You meet real people and experience real wartime conditions. Difficult to put the book down.
NORD'S REVIEW Jan 29, 2004
"ONE STEP FROM GLORY" IS AN UNIQUE PRESENTATION OF A WAR NOT POPULAR WITH MODERN HISTORICAL WRITERS. MR LITTLE HAS PROVIDED AN EXCELLENT ACCOUNT OF US INVOLMENT IN WWI WHILE ALLOWING US TO LIVE THE DRAMA OF WAR THROUGH THE LIVES OF REAL ORDINARY MEN. WE SEE THE JOBS OF THESE YOUNG MEN IN THE ARTILLERY, INFANTRY AND OUR NEW AIR FORCE AS EACH GROUP LEARNS WHAT IS REQUIRED TO FREE EUROPE FROM THE GRASP OF THE HUN.
A Very Good Read Jan 13, 2004
"One Step From Glory" is a very good read with great attention paid to descriptive historic detail. The life of a novice soldier in World War I is fully portrayed. You'll have a meaningful picture of this pivotal war in U.S. history.
