Really did not know what to expect when I purchased this book. Reviews can be tricky at best but I figured this was worth a shot as the story sounded fascinating. A long forgotten aspect of a minor conflict from almost 40 years ago.
The book will grab you from the first page through the very end. The author's writing style is superb to say the least. His ability to paint a picture and tell the story never falters.
I live in NYC and read on the subway each day during my commute. This was the type of book that I would literally wake up on a Monday and be excited to go to work because I would get the chance to continue reading the story.
Military history enthusiasts aside, this is a great book for anyone who wants to hear about a true life amazing story of how human ingenuity and resolve can accomplish the nearly impossible.
Great story and amazing writing. Just buy it, you will not be disappointed.
