The writing style is very matter of fact with no literary airs and graces and no real poitical axe to grind. It focuses on him and his small team.
In a weird way, the actual `big event` sort of suddenly occurs and you are in the middle of the battle. It is written in such a way that you really feel you are there, the sights, sounds and smells. It wasn't about a US military triumph but more about the human tragedy, the friendship, the loss and perhaps most importantly of all, the will of the men involved to survive. A lot of medals were won and blood spilled (on both sides). It's not gung-ho but very matter of fact.
I enjoyed it a lot but felt that the book ended quite quickly after the battle and it would have been nicer for some more information or narrative on what else went on after that (hardly a big deal).
All in all, a very good read as I couldn't put it down and read it in about 4 days!
