As he got started, he discovered that there were two wars-- the Pacific war and the European war-- that were very different from each other. He wrote "Into the rising Sun" about the Pacific war and "Beyond Valor" about the European war.
This is an outstanding pair of books and gives a "boots on the ground" view of war. An excellent idea, well executed.
I take my hat off to Patrick O'Donnell for his outstanding achievement.

Better than SledgeHammer's book which is saying a lot.
