The book concetrated on the people, not the timeline of the war. Too many histories simply tell what happened. By having a better understanding of the people that actually took part, we can learn more about their success and failures.
How the book showed how the main characters in the war came to be the people we only know by name.
Eddie Riddenbacher (sp?) and how he lived and conducted business. Very eye opening.
Very good book, the experience that America's future leaders gained in WWI is often overlooked. Well worth the time.
