"US History was my niche all through school, particularly WWII. In an era where people believed that life "as they knew it" would be coming to an end, if the axis of evil were not defeated. At the time as a Lt. in the Corps. Lt. Col. Dean Ladd's recollection of the horrific landing on Tarawa, and all the additional engagements he was a party to, will hold you spellbound as his comrade in arms spring to life as you read. I am a person that takes several weeks to read a book, but this book I read in 3 nights in to the wee hours of the morning not wanting to put it down. A must read for all military history buffs.
