I thought that i would enjoy this subject, but it started sounding like "Charlie Brown's teacher" .... so, I quit reading after about an hour. Taking absolutely nothing from the heroes herein, I just did not like the book.

This is a well-written account of 4 brave soldiers’ experiences during WWII. As the book constantly jumps from one to the other, I confess that their stories blurred together. Regardless, the horrors of what these young men (and the others that they fought with) went through is quite vivid. It is all very tragic. Their heroics are undeniable. I appreciated that the author included what happened to these young men after the war, as no doubt their lives would have been forever affected by what they went through.
I won a free copy of this book (thanks to the author & publisher!) and am voluntarily providing an honest review
