Jenkins does a great job of explaining the birth of the 10th Mountain Division. I liked this book because it really captured the personalities of some of the first Mountain soldiers. Jenkins didn't try to exaggerate their accomplishments or make heroes out of the soldiers unnecessarily, either. It just tells what happens. This reads more like a novel than it does a military history book. And I HIGHLY recommend it for my brother-in-law if he hasn't already read it!!
