Although a bit slow to start the characters are defined well and you will soon engage and choose your specific favourite. These heroes are more real as they suffer both physically and emotionally, losing friends and loved ones. Not everything is clear as good versus evil. Looking forward to reading the next in the series to see if Amber makes it.
I do not normally read biographies, however, I had a family connection to Bill Slim so thought I would give it a go. Russell Miller keeps the book interesting without being dry. Yes there are facts and dates around the history of the wars but you get to know Bill Slim as a person, including all of his faults. an enjoyable read.
