VIVID AND TRUTHFUL

This is one everyone should read. If you were a part of it, it is a stark reminder of what was. If this was before your time, then this work will come as close as a work can to "how it was."
The author's handling of the subject of war, from a personal prespective, is without flaw. This is one of the better first hand accounts of any military conflict I have read. The "history books" and accounts of Generals and Politicians are all well and good, and of course should be read to gain greater a
understanding, but they are nothing when compaired to a work such as this. The author is able to make you feel. This is important. Very much recommend you read this one.
