As a veteran himself, the author is obviously very close to this work, and it shows not only in his passion for his subject, but also in his attention to detail.
His method, which weaves the veterans' own stories into an historical overview of a specific conflict, is extremely effective. The soldiers' accounts go well beyond the war's scorecard and reveal some of the actual fears and experiences of the participants.
