it was ok
bookshelves: biography, historical-fiction
Read from June 28 to July 04, 2011

The idea of the book interested me and I was impressed by the amount of research Shaara must have completed. The book did help bring a battle to life but it was a struggle to finish. The emotions, the health concerns, the lack of ammunition, the troop movements - it all had the potential to be fascinating and insightful. Instead, it was choppy and terse. It read as a bulleted list that someone had tried to convert to paragraphs without adding additional words. That lack of fluidity in the writing made it hard to read.
