Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is Jeff Shaara at his best, giving us another superb historically grounded novel of one of the most dramatic struggles of World War II.” George McGovern
“Shaara can certainly bring a scene to life. [His] nonfiction introduction…should be required reading for every middle school American history class. It is far better in its brief account…than most of today’s textbooks. A fascinating summary, and naturally, much more readable than textbook prose. Mr. Shaara is…giving the people what they want—and what they need.” Wall Street Journal
“[A] wonderful first volume of a planned trilogy…Sprawling, masterful.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A page-turning introduction that will leave fans of first-rate military fiction awaiting the next installments.” Booklist
“This is the magnificent opening volume of a trilogy about World War II in Europe…Shaara says he does not write history. Instead, he enables readers to view history through the eyes of its participants…The technique is exciting and engrossing and gives a you-are-there feel to the enormous events being described. Even readers who think they know a lot about the great drama and tragedy that was World War II will be fascinated, while those knowing little or nothing of the war will find themselves educated and intrigued. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
