I usually like reading about WW II escapades, but this one wasn't written well enough to engage me. It feels to me like the author is sitting around, slapping these guys on the backs and congratulating them on their fights and liaisons while they are in training. When talking about the potential transfer of trainees out of Dog Company, O'Donnell equates someone telling his CO he really wants to stay with someone who breaks the communications-blackout order by trying to send a note from the troop train: as if stupidity equates with determination. It's just too glib overall. He uses "utilize" far too often, as do many people.
