Any book that can make my heart race as if I were on on the battleground with these Rough Riders is worthy of a 5 star rating. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
It's not the war but the caring exchanges between Jack, Henry, Akers, and First Sergeant Gibbons, that create this truly 5-Star work of historic fiction. Former Indian fighter Akers sums up war's glories with his pre-battle remark that, "Only pretty thing 'bout war is the girls ah wavin' when ya go marchin' by."
Much of what really helped these warriors rise above debilitating fear to do the will of their sometimes egotistical superiors was the timely telling of a not necessarily funny joke and that nagging inner drive to "measure up", to do ones part at every step. It was Jack caring for his friends and they for him. Survival, even heroism, emerged in part from the simple advice (Akers again) to take your fear and "just stuff it in a Prince Albert can closing the lid down real tight."
I couldn't put this book down and will search out other works by this great author. And, sometime in the future, Pursuit Of Glory will be a reread because it's just that good.
