A Remarkable First Read
A most riveting read! The author got some of the military stuff wrong, and there were some syntax errors that slipped through, but they didn’t detract from the book. Lots of realistic action throughout the 600 pages that kept me involved to the very end. Bravo Zulu to you!
One of those books you don’t want to put down after you start reading!
Great read. Lots of everything!
