Customer Review

on 8 June 2008
Let me start by saying that I have tremendous respect for any of the men and women who served in the armed forces during WWII.

However, I think that this book was written on the back of the success of Band of Brothers and the autobiographies of the other Easy Company men that were released around the same time.

On a number of occasions Buck Compton's memories of events are called into question by accounts of others and even himself. Some of his accounts are at opposites with the consensus of the other vets that contributed to Ambrose's book.

However, it was interesting to read the views of a man whose leadership style was quite different to Dick Winters as well as the differences in personality with the likes of Louis Nixon.

The most frustrating thing about Call of Duty is that Compton's accounts of events before, during and after the war frequently leave the reader feeling like the story has been ended just as it became interesting and that surely there must be more.
