did not like it
Read in March, 2009

It took me five months to read this book. I kept walking away from it as I thought it too wordy. The Characters went on and on over things that I didn’t think helped the plot. At times it was like quicksand; too much detail. For a book that is considered Historical Fiction I found about twenty pages out of 572 that dealt directly with the war, the rest was just characters talking. I did find the beginning interesting. The Authors politics was also obvious; McArthur, a brilliant military mind? Ask Eisenhower, he worked for him for 10 years. We should do our homework and use the facts and not politics to evaluate the past. Do I sound a little naive here?
I hate to see my review when I get it done.
