Read from November 15 to 18, 2010

Just finished this this morning. I found it very moving, quietly told. Moments I particularly remember were the men singing together and remembering their last leave on US soil before they go in to fight. Also the lonely young man with the pen pal girl friend he has never met. Although told in a very simple straight forward way I felt as if I knew the characters. Even characters I generally liked didn't always behave well--which made them all the more human.
