I recommend this title highly. By the end of the book, I felt a deep and personal connection with the men whose history it told. I felt genuine pain at their losses and joy at their overcoming of hardships. So impressed was I with the work that I have ordered the book on cd and the hard copy for my local library, as well as searching out the two first person accounts Richard Okane authored himself in out of print book shops to donate to my local public library.
I read this book as a teenager and always loved the series and the charecter. The audio version was a great, fun "read" on the drive to work and it really took me back. I'm amazed at how well the writing and the story holds up after all these years. I found the narrators attempts to have the martian charecters sound Alien a bit forced, but that was a small enough distraction.
