Book Review of The Rising Tide (Second World War, Bk 1)

The Rising Tide (Second World War, Bk 1)
DieHard avatar reviewed on

This novel begins essentially with America's entrance into the war starting with the campaign in Africa and ends with the liberation of Italy. Some parts of this book are written in a way only a military strategist could love. I prefer reading about the individual experience rather than command minutiae but this is only a minor criticism and only applies to brief portions of the novel. Overall this is an excellent chronicle of the early years of the war. Looking forward to the next chapter in this series.
