Best of its class
By typical iPod dude
I have read several books by this author and it ranks among the best I have ever read . As a professional soldier I can say his work excels at letting the reader see the decisions and how they affected the personality of the conflict . Lots of authors try and give the strategic view then vignettes of the " man at front " experience and very few have the ability to blend it together . This author does . He's very good at bringing these people to life - the pivotal figures and the and the regular people as well . I've read a lot professionally and for the enjoyment on these subjects and in my opinion these are stand alone history's of the us army in World War Two . Reads like fiction actually but these events really happened . He really got me on the other level too . His first book ; " an army at dawn " . His beginning - I had to stop reading for a moment when he talks of the cemetery - " 16 of saddest words in the human language " . I can't say enough . I've read both of these twice and am waiting with out much patience for the 3rd installment .
His first - " An army at dawn " - I give a 9.5 out of 10 .
The second - " Day of Battle " - I give the same , 9.5 out of 10 .
I read a lot too . Last stand of the tin can sailors - a time for trumpets - Alamo in the Ardennes - the green mountain boys - etc.
And his ranks among the very top of the class . Beats Tom Brokaw any day and dare I say - Ambrose . Band of Brothers was top shelf but these stand right there with it . Of course - all my humble opinion .
The Day of Battle
By One Lung McClung
This is the second book of a trilogy. A spectacular blow by blow accounting of the invasion of Europe through Sicily and up the boot of Italy all the way to the capture of Rome. If you're into an in-depth read on WWII, you'll definitely be satisfied with this volume. You'll want to dive right into the third volume once you've conquered the first two.
