History books are usually boring. This is a rare exception. This reads like a novel. Philbrick's writing is clear and concise. Besides the way he writes there are 2 other aspects to this that make this a very enjoyable read: Philbrick's character development...you feel at the end that you knew all these main characters and second the 18 maps. In historical military fiction, maps are (to my mind) essential elements...this book has a plethora of maps that allow you to see and visualize what happened on another level. This book is a pleasure to read.
