In terms of books on battles/war, this book is one of the best I have ever read. I believe that, rather than being written by a historian who may over-romanticize events, it was written by the commander on the ground. Adding to that is the fact that there are a lot of first-hand accounts by the soldiers involved. This story is told honestly and up-close and you feel like you are there with the men as they fight for their lives. If this genre is an interest to you, this is a book you have to read.
