    " Man, why do schools ruin books for kids? I read this book on my own as a teen because I wanted to read it. I honestly believe it helped to establish some of my ideas about war and the idea of "justifiable" war. But, why are there so many negative reviews on this site? Because teachers feel a need to force feed the kids every tiny piece of this book. Don't let them think for themselves. Make sure you discuss each and every word. Every nuance. Every thought. Every action. So by the time you have finished this unit, they wish the "shot heard round the world" had been aimed at Howard Fast. Such an excellent book told from the perspective of a young man who is basically a child. He thinks war is going to be exciting and glamorous. Instead he sees it in all its bloody gore and horror. He instantly becomes a man and learns what it means to fight for what you believe in and to fight against an injust government. What a tremendous book. "
