This review is from: Warfare in the Western World: Military Operations since 1871, Volume II (Hardcover)
Yeah I found this book to be really lacking in the whole "cool" category (and "sweet" category while I'm at it). I learn more from the history channel and old John Wayne videos. You should only buy this book if you go to West Point and they just closed book issue and your Professor is getting all up in your grill about buying one. If you buy this book for any of the following reasons...flog yourself:
1) You think you will enjoy it
2) To beef up your "professional library"
3) Cause your one of those "militant type" people that reads everything in the world about the Military, wear BDU pants tucked into your combat boots out in public, you have a "Semper Fi" bumpersticker on your car, and sport an extreme high and tight...yet your way too scared to actually join the military other than the Seacadets or Boy Scouts.
4) Any other brutally terrible reason that has not been previously stated.
(if you chose option three than feel free flog yourself (in the face) twice)
Thanks, and happy shopping

If you do in fact "learn more from the history channel and old John Wayne videos" than by reading this book, you're obviously not the type of person who really knows anything worthwhile about history.

What a rude review. And being "cool" or "sweet" rank pretty darn low among the features of good history.

I really don't think this "A Customer" ever bothered to look at this book.
