    In this adventure from the pen of Sweden's master of crime and mystery, a disillusioned Inspector Kurt Wallander is thrown back into the fray when he becomes both hunter and hunted. Crestfallen, dejected, and spiraling into an alcohol-fuelled depression after killing a man in the line of duty, Inspector Wallander has made up his mind to quit the police force for good. When an old acquaintance, a solicitor, seeks Wallander's help and later turns up dead, Wallander realizes that he was wrong not to listen.

    It is said that the right man in the right place at the right time can mean the difference between victory and defeat. This is the dramatic story of 68 soldiers in the US Army's Second Ranger Battalion, Company D - "Dog Company" - who made that difference, time and again. America had many heroes in World War II; however, few can say that, but for them, the course of the war would have been very different. The right men, the right place, the right time - Dog Company.

    Would you listen to Dog Company again? Why?

    I would listen to dog company again because the characters are well drawn and more importantly, real. The author and narrators do a wonderful job of incorporating vivid descriptions of the actions and first Person memories of some of the men involved.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patrick K. O’Donnell again?

    Yes, i heard him bring interviews on pubic radio which is what drew me purchasing the audio book. Excellent research.


    What does John Pruden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    John does an excellent job of capturing the closeness of the men, their commitment to their assignments. Descriptions of battles were vivid.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The actual landing and climb of cliffs
