really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read from September 02 to 03, 2011

As a first person account of war, it's outstanding -- and the eloquence of the author is quite amazing for a man who didn't go to university at that time. My only complaints are (1) later battle entries tend to blur together for me in my mind, and (2) I would have loved to read descriptions of life while on leave...but these are minor quibbles.
