If you were hoping for sober reflections on man's place in the world and struggles against other men, well, forget it. The man breathed military doctrine and that's mostly what this is. One gets the impression that he was very sensitive to criticism and he knew how to hold a grudge.
Wow! What an amazing book. I was very skeptical at first for one main reason: Military leaders and professors have a hard time writing their thoughts and opinions of war down on paper. However, I personally find that "Old Blood and Guts" did a fantastic job of showing his personal account not only on the war, but on other cultures around North Africa and the European Theater. Highly recommended to anybody who is interested in history, WWII, or anyone wanting to learn about a man larger than life.
