Jeff Shaara does a great job of explaining the First World War in good detail and storyline. The writing in the novel is, in my opinion, much better then his previous books, by that I mean there is less 'loose dialog (rambling)' in this book. The first couple of chapters moves very quickly and he does get a little long winded in the middle, and once beyond that, it moves again until the end. I was a Marine and the 'Battle of Belleau Wood' is beaten into us from day 2 on Parris Island, so it was nice to read about what the Marines did, and the political side of the war. I didn't know much about 'Black' Jack Pershing before this book and it was nice to see that this man did care about his troops and that he would not sacrifice them like the other countries did. I read the book before watching 'Apocalypse WWI' and glad I did, Jeff Shaara gives detail not coved in the series and really makes the series much more enjoyable. The last section of the book talks about the total average deaths per day, and when I read it, I was just in total shock at the deaths that occurred in that war.

Great WWI book
Not really a novel, nor just a history. Shaara's books combine the best of both as he enter-twines the stories of ordinary people along with the famous and powerful. Great stories, great reading, hard to put down. I have many of his books.
