Reviews for Hardback Edition: In order to produce this fine book, the author has conducted extensive interviews with participants and consulted archival and published materials. This gives the book an excellent balance between the events as witnessed by the participants and the broader historic, strategic and tactical issues. It also makes for a great reading experience. The text is full of excellent war stories and covers a wide variety of combat and non-combat scenarios...You'll not be disappointed. Highly recommended. Missing Lynx
