Review:

2 nd book book of a trilogy on the 101st in ww2.the 1st volume is on d day the last on the bulge this vol covers the market garden operation the infamous bridge too far.... filled with 1st person accounts enjoyed this book so much after buying the hard cover bought the soft cover to put in the glove box to read while stopped at train or waiting in a drve thru.written by a veteran who was there as well --By William C. Mcdaniel

Stark realism on the conditions men endured in life and death. Thank God I did not have to do it. Strips away the "John Wayne" image of war, and shows that belonging to your buddies and the esprit de corps kept you going in a down to earth way. --By R. S. Totten

Like many people who saw "Saving Private Ryan" I was interested in finding out more about what happened in WWII. I was born in 1959 and I've seen all of the old war movies. This book brought it all down to a very human level. The men in the trenches tell their own stories and Mr. Koskimaki puts these stories together so that you get a much clearer picture of the day to day actions and heroism that these brave men (and women) survived. I recommend it highly --David Kirk
