There's no mistaking the action is packed and the story makes you feel like you are ducking bullets in the lines with the squad. After proving himself in leading his platoon while fighting in Italy , he is then promoted to sergeant. The interplay between the different characters is simply amazing, often gut busting. I was glad to find out that he wasn't a bombastic, self-aggrandizing bastard, to be honest.

An old man that neither I, nor Chris, know but still it's there I'd like to be decorated with a discharge.
A good read, one any military history fan should have already consumed. All of this from an year old kid!
Dunson John Wayne with The most admired soldier in history put his life on the time and time again he worked extremely hard his whole life.
The replacements get short shrift largely interchangeable cogs in the war machine. One night at a rowdy bar, they hear on the radio that the Allies have won Africa, but although they hope to be sent home, they are routed to Sicily.
