I have recently had a bent for learning all I can about WWII, and have read many books on the subject. Naturally I was interested in this one. Even with all my recently acquired knowledge, this book was hard to follow and hard to digest, not through any fault of the author, but because of the scope of the battle and the situations it engendered. It is just a lot to take in. Honestly, I don't know how anyone lived through that battle.
I did learn a lot from the book though, and will read it again somewhere down the road.
A belated but heartfelt thank you to the greatest generation, and to those who held Bastogne and similar places. That would include my Father and my Father-in-law. Thank you for your courage, determination and sacrifice. I am grateful for people like you because if I had been given that responsibility,I probably could not have done it.
John Lee is a masterful narrator. I'm not sure I would have picked him for this particular title, however, just because of personal preference. I like him more as a narrator of fiction. Still, I enjoyed his reading of the book, and especially loved hearing him use an American accent. No matter how hard they try, well educated Brits just can't get that accent down to earth enough.
