Mr. Grasso may be writing what he labels alternate history, but even if the particulars of the campaign are altered one comes away with the impression that these books must describe pretty accurately the agony experienced by the soldiers involved. A well-led outfit like Jock's was one thing, but Mr. Grasso does not shy away from also putting poorly led units into the picture, and it isn't a pretty one. There are heroes and cowards aplenty, simple mistakes and friendly fire, and sickness to contend with. The Japanese suffer from the American and Australian pressure, lack of supply, and the same illnesses, but do not seem to lack for courage. Neither side displays much mercy towards the other.
Mr. Grasso devotes a few short sections to seeing things from the Japanese side, which is interesting in a minor way. And it should be noted that throughout the series he has been masterful in his use of dialects, whether American or Australian, and exceedingly careful to remain true to the period. In sum, this series is an important aid to understanding the experiences of the troops fighting in the New Guinea campaign.
I've already purchased the next two books in the Jock Miles series and look forward to reading them! It is a rare yet valuable talent for an author to leave his readers with a feeling of "family" with his characters. Mr. Grasso does so magnificently.
The hero & his best friend in the story each gets their girl and the story goes on. A must read for anyone that likes a good War adventure story with an unpredictable outcome.
