Of the many books (3 to 4 dozen) I have read on battles and wars in general, including WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, this book's description of combat scenes and action captured almost everything except the loud ear piercing explosions and smells of the fray. The descriptions are factual yet engender all the emotions of actually being involved in the battle (Maybe not quite as intense). The battle action is sequential and at times unbelievable. While describing a single 11 day event, it achieves the author's intent to vindicate America's gratitude toward military personnel. For over two hundred years military personnel have preserved our freedom, although the appreciation of them is not fully understood and generally insufficient. This book will increase the appreciation of all dedicated military personnel.
