Lifting examples or trying to quote from this brilliant account is almost like tearing threads from the Bayeaux tapestry in order to analzyze its beauty... Rich in lessons and satisfaction for soldiers, statesman, and plain citizens of every country.
This non-ghost-written book is as simple and as forthright as the innumerable admirers of its author have every right to expect it would be.
