Enough has already been said eloquently by the other reviewers so I'll just say you will miss a truly great book if you dont catch this one. I work in a bookstore and recommend it to my customers. None have been disappointed.

If you are a fan of World War II history you will really appreciate the first hand accounts of these great men. My only complaint is the loud music and fake war sounds used during the book. Reminds me of a disk jockey talking over the music and distracting you. Nonetheless, you will like this book. (Would have been 5 stars hands down without the hokey sound effects)
