This book is about an 18-year-old boy who enlisted in the army during WWII. It is about the things he learns about himself as he experiences war. I thought that while at times heartbreaking, it was a good book.
This is a interesting view of a young boy who finds himself drafted into the Army during WW2 and discovering that he is, in fact, a coward. How he copes with this in the middle of wartime is an interesting read along with his brushes with greatness. Deep, but fun!
