A Great Chronicle of a Soldier's Life
on October 15, 2015
This is a book about the true horror of a soldier being maimed for life, and dealing with the adversity he encounters along the way, during and after the war. It's a story about a person who did not question authority at the early stages of his young life, and who could not stop questioning it after he became a man. He is a man that examined himself and reality after being wounded. This book was close to Ron's heart, and I don't think that there's anyone who couldn't emphasize with him after reading his honestly penned story. This book could be compared to the horror of war found by the protagonist in Stephen Crane's masterpiece, "The Red Badge of Courage," set during the American Civil War. In Crane's fictional book, the protagonist makes it back from war in one piece, but he is seriously and permanently changed by the experience. Interestingly, Crane, had never really been a soldier in war.
