An absolutely splendid story of mankind, from youth through the most horrid wartime conditions...his Journey is quite remarkable and worth your time...enjoy
This story is amazing and one all Americans should hear. I enjoyed Edward Herrmann's narration very much. So much of the story is difficult to listen to, but Laura inserted some welcomed humor. I have not seen the movie, but I could picture every moment through this audible book.
One who was born long after World War II was over, this book was and I feel of what American soldiers endured during that horrific time. We can only hope that such inhumanity has been removed from the human character as time has progressed.
The story of these men is amazing, but the way it was written paired with the narrator's work created a perfect read. Parts brought me to tears, but I also laughed with the men too. I couldn't pull myself from this book once I started.
Hillenbrand is an excellent writer, her research so extensive and her descriptive qualities amazing. Additionally, Hermann's narration is gripping. I listened to the entire story, stopping only to eat and sleep.
The reality of mans inhumanity to man, along with mans ability to rise above seemingly impossible odds is awe inspiring! I am grateful for the power of prayer and faith that became so life changing for all the youth he served and others lives he touched.
I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the history of American and those who have, and are served by our military.
