this book is written by a man of broad experience, and the fact that his prodigious intellect was focused on this subject gives evidence to the magnitude of the animal. David Webster was in E Company, 506 PIR, 101st Airborne in WWII, and was among the people who were the subjects of the monumental historical book Band of Brothers...Webster was not only an intellectual giant, but also a true American hero in every sense of the word. Reading this book puts the reader in touch with a mind that was hardened in the forge of battle, and softened in that same forge. I would recommend it not only to those who are interested in ichthyology, but also for anyone who wants insight into the heart of a true hero.
