"Author Pier Paolo Battistelli does a great job of not only telling the story of Kesselring, but also looking into the man himself ... Not only do we look at the life of the man, but are able to follow his career from the beginning and see how he handled each of the commands he was given. It is a superb book about one of Germany's most well respected generals. A book I thoroughly enjoyed reading and one that I can most highly recommend to you."
- Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
