I listened to the audio book version of this novel and was mesmerized by it. Philip Bosco’s reading is extraordinary and ads immensely to a book that is already very well written. Shaara is a great author who writes about war and the personal drama of it very well.
This book follows a handful of American warriors during the First World War, including pilots, infantry, and officers. The personal stories of these men is both horrific and heart-wrenching.
In fact, if you don’t have tears in your eyes as the last few lines unfold, you’re not human. That’s how great this book is. Highly recommended.
