Harold Coyle focuses his attention on the thoughts and actions of individual soldiers in small units. In "God's Children," you get up close and personal with the thoughts, fears and driving professionalism of two junior officers in an unexpected combat situation. The arrogant, wet behind the ears 2nd lieutenant Reider on his first day incountry leading a "peacekeeping" patrol and the slightly more experienced, but far more soldierly, 1st lieutenant Dixon tagging along as an unwanted observer. Coyle writes about infantry combat from the grunt's perspective. You feel the fear of the enlisted men, seeking firm guidance from their officers - and the different kinds of uncertainty emanating from these two very different kinds of officers. I started reading this book Thursday afternoon and, putting my work aside, couldn't put it down until I had finished it Friday evening. That's the power of Harold Coyle's writing.
