Elson's compilation reminds me of those long ago but never forgotten conversations. This is not a work of polished history. It is an older collection of stories from the guys who lived them told in their unvarnished voices and with the recognition that their voices would soon be lost. It's a grunt level look at the range of emotions combat produces in boys sent to fight in men's wars. If you can overlook the lack of polish then the power of the narrative will draw you into their stories. These are the type of stories I grew up with and I wish I could hear them again. Read it for the narrative if for no other reason.
