This quick read paints a cold reality and stark story that must mirror some of the real-life experiences of WWII combat veterans. In the story we follow a small squad of US soldiers as they push through the frozen cold on a quick recon-type mission. Outside of the harsh elements they are forced to deal with enemy soldiers, trust issues and a "sense of purpose", both that have life and death consequences.

What was amazing to me was how quickly I felt cold, lost and anxious. It's not a big book and the author does a good job of drawing you into the setting on the cold mountain side.

I give this book 3 out of 5 and recommend to folks who are already drawn to war stories.
