I love it so far. Shows how war weeds out the posers by the end. Unforunately, alot of people need to die to figure out who is doing the job for the prestige and who actually knows what they are doing.

Ok...civil war battle books are hard to follow when they get into the action because you have no frame of reference as to where everyone is relative to each other.

You get wounded you die back then. And they chop of your limbs to try and save you. A person can be standing next to you one minute and be headless the next. Wow....
