This is another of Stephen Ambrose's tributes to the fighting men of the ETO in WWII. It reminded me of Citizen Soldiers and did not really add much to that narrative. In this book, Ambrose brings in a bit more about the generals, Eisenhower in particular, but mostly it was more stories from the trenches. I will say that some of the information about Ike gave me a greater appreciation for him as a warrior and a man; he seems to be a greatly underestimated figure in our history.
