excellent patriotic book May 10, 2006
One of the best historical books I have ever read. I purchased a few for gifts for my family. Any patriotic american would enjoy this book.
Very moving May 5, 2006
I read this book and bought 2 more to give as gifts. Very detailed. The veterans experiences, as told by them; not someone else's commentary or "historical" account of the war but what these veterans actually experienced and their perceptions of war. This book has increased my gratitude for our veterans and I've read several excerpts to my sons to help them to understand the value of sacrifice and patriotism and gratitude for our veterans and our freedom. This would be a great book to use in history classes.
