I am a much bigger fan of tales of derring-do and individual bravery than battle overviews. While I had read or heard of many of the stories, the author provided new insights into the tales of bravery. The author has a comfortable writing style making the book not a page turner, but an easy and interesting read somewhere between the styles of Stephen Ambrose and Clay Blair. The book would have been benefited from a few changes. The maps were too few and too simplistic. The author also should have either increased the number of conflicts he drew his stories from or limited them to the World Wars. For example, I liked the stories about the Israeli armed forces, but I just felt that they didn't fit with the overwhelming focus on the two larger wars. In sum, a good but not great book.
