Review quote

.."."a fascinating tale, well written, and one which ought to catch the recently renewed interest in WW II operations." . . . a fascinating tale, well written and one which ought to catch the recently renewed interest in WW II operations. If my reaction to Rutters personality is typical of what to expect of other readers, this should prove to be a popular book. This young man gives the impression of being a thoroughly decent human being, a conscientious officer, and a fine professional. I would be glad to have him in my command.--I. B.
