    “If I were God, what would you want for Christmas?” With a thousand-yard stare, a haggard and bloodied marine looked incredulously at the war correspondent who asked him this question. In an answer that took “almost forever,” the marine responded, “Give me tomorrow." After nearly four months of continuous and bloody combat in Korea, such a wish seemed impossible.

    James says: "The boys of Summer Camp….Amazing!!"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I am a shamed to admit that my reading and knowledge of the Korean War is minimal.

    However, reading (listening) "Give Me Tomorrow" has opened my mind and educated me regarding this terrible war. Most people, and I was one of them always referred to this subject as the Korean Conflict. But after reading Mr. O'Donnell's educating work this was no and never will be a Conflict in my eyes again.

    Thank you Mr. O'Donnell for educating me and my thanks to all Americans for their service during this war.

    Little Bighorn and Custer are names synonymous in the American imagination with unmatched bravery and spectacular defeat. Mythologized as Custer's Last Stand, the June 1876 battle has been equated with other famous last stands, from the Spartans' defeat at Thermopylae to Davy Crockett at the Alamo.

    Stanley says: "So enjoyed the re-visit to this historical battle."

    Overall

    This was my second audiobook ever and I have to say I chose very well.

    In my younger years I read several books about Native Americans, Custer, and the Battle at the Little Big Horn and it was so very fascinating then.

    After reading (listening) to the "The Last Stand" the fascination and enjoyment continues now that I am older (55+).

    Mr. Philbrick has provided an excellent source into this historical period of time. Not only was he able to provide clarifications on the battle, but an insight into how the government thought and acted towards our Native American citizens.

    I commend him on this work and thank him for this A+ effort.
