Review quote

"* "Immensely readable." - New York Times "Fehrenbach describes good decisions and bad ones with insight and expertise. But what he does best of all, and what is so memorable, is his eloquent, some-times painful description of the GIs who must bear the burden of those decisions. That is the awful beauty of this book - it cuts straight to the heart of all the political and military errors, and reveals the brave souls who have to bleed and die for mistakes made." - Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.)"
