KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a book that helps one read the war communiques with keener understanding, that helps one know not only what happens when men go into battle in this new kind of warfare, but how they feel and what they think. It is superb reporting of the battle of El Guettar, from the waiting for orders, behind the lines, through the ghostly advance, the approach to action, the part played by different segments of the army -- and the aftermath. It is the sort of book that will make youth more aware of what he will be fighting for, in that period ahead; of what our thinking on the home front can do to help -- or hinder -- the morale at the front.
