I enjoy personal memoirs of war, and this one is good, but it is a slow read because the author writes in a style where he has to use all the various skills and tools of the writer to describe every event, every land feature, etc. it makes it a slow read. I find myself waiting for when is the action going to begin. it is a good book and well written, just slow. A helmet for my pillow is well written also. The difference is A Helmet for my Pillow ais fast paced, you don't want to put it down.So yes, read it, but be patient!
