Frustratingly poor. There is nothing wrong with oral history being used to give a history on a specific battle etc. This is a book on a "specific" battle and with that an author has to make sure that he has backed his narrative and quotes with a source. Why not at least tell the reader via footnotes as to the source of the comment. A two page Acknowledgments and one page bibliography is just not good enough considering the many comments that where used to justify the narrative.
