I have read books about this war that were better written, more gut wrenching, more immediate. I have not read any other books which related to me the experience I might have, if I were to go to war. The other books have shown me what it would be like to be a young soldier. I was especially , horrifically delighted by the detail about mercury thermometers being useless at their base because they only register up to 120 F.
