    " Short essays on the US and British infantry in Europe during World War II. Bitter and pessimistic, but perhaps we need the occasional reminder that the war was not easy and that there were mistakes, deserters, and scared young men on our side as well. "

    " I thought this was ok. It gave some interesting information about the war from the perspective of a young soldier. It wasn't particularly well written (in my opinion) but it was easy to understand how things happened during the war when so many of the soldiers were young, naive men. "

    " Rather than try to retell the history of the European Campaign, Mr. Fussell concentrates on stories about the GIs fighting the battles. The stories are organized chronologically. Interesting read. "
