This book and its reading rank as high as any for me, only in part because of a personal connection I have to FSB Illingworth.
Ralph Jones. I can easily relate to him because he is from Cincinnati and was on the 2/32 8 inch Howitzer as was I.
Having been there (April 1st, 1971- exactly one year after the attack on FSB Illingworth) I can picture the entire event. I might not use the word "favorite" though.
My extreme reaction was one of appreciation for the author doing this book. Because I knew of this event, I always felt it deserved this outstanding recognition.
Thank you... this book fills in many gaps to my memories. God Bless.
