This book also shows us the character development of a young man just beginning to cover the actual fighting, his growth and change into a first-rate combat reporter, his longing for his family and his fervent desire to be on the frontlines as much as possible so that his reports were honest and compelling.
These days we can sit in front of our television and watch people getting killed halfway around the world but in Don's time, the only way to know what was truly happening (as much as the censors would permit) was to send someone to the actual place.
I knew Don Whitehead as a person but not as a combat reporter. This book was excellent, very well written and made me want to read the rest of Mr. Romeiser's books.
