I Was Disaapointed

I had just finished 'Company Commander' (Excellent!) and was looking for another book along this vein...WWII ETO by a combat lower-ranking soldier. I was especially excited because my father was also in Patton's Third Army. But this book is not in-depth at all. It's very superficial. It almost like an executive summary or extremely abridged. This would make a really good book for a first-time reader of the genre but I've been reading these books since 6th grade...1973. The performance was lacking as well. It sounded like it was recorded with a pair of earbuds. And the reader's timbre was off-putting, as well as the speed of the reading accelerated. It's a less than two hour book so I realized some of this from that fact but I was still disappointed.
