Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Alex Kershaw is to be commended for this book featuring the story of the Infantry Regiment of the 45th called the Thunderbird Division. Kershaw's book compares comfortably with the famous Band of Brothers. The story is a story that reveals what made the United States military such a great force during World War II. The key to victory, as Kershaw shows, was not the American machine and its ability to give its men the weapons for warfare but it is found in the character of the men fighting. These men would give their all not for their nation (though they did fight to win and overthrow Hitler and Nazi Germany) but for their brothers fighting around them.

The story is a moving account that begins on July 10, 1943 with the Allied landing in Sicily to May 8, 1945 when VE Day was declared and the war ended in Europe. During those nearly 2 years, Kershaw takes you with the Thunderbirds as they fight to liberate Europe. You'll learn the story of the men more than just the battles they fought (though they are there). You'll celebrate their victories and cry over their losses. War is not glamorous. War is hard. Tears are shed. Many men die.

Overall, I highly recommend this book. You'll not be disappointed. If you enjoyed Band of Brothers, you'll enjoy this book tremendously.
