WWII revisited Jun 19, 2011
This author has a relaxed flowing style of writing that captures your attention and holds it during tense and very complex scenes of battle. However, if it were only the battle scenes that were done well, the book would still not be of much interest to many readers. It is the rest of the picture that makes Shaara's books so compelling to read. His sense of historical place and how he can make historically well known figures seem real, intensely human, while skillfully avoiding the traps of over dramatization. If you like stories of WWII and the way the world was during that time, get this book and enjoy it.
