Five Years, Four Fronts gives it to the reader "with the bark on." It is utterly devoid of self-serving, selective amnesia or embellishments, and conveys a sense of eminent humanity. Far from being consistently perfect examples of military efficiency or martial valor, the characters in this book cover the spectrum from coward and incompetent dolt, to eccentric, to near-saint and lionhearted warrior. Similarly, the quality of planning, support, and decision-making the author observed spans the range from imbecilic to uninspired to brilliant. Most importantly, this book covers several of the "sideshow" battles and campaigns of WWII in Europe, and exposes the reader to a German Army that many readers will be surprised to find existed.
