I’ve known John for a few years now and don’t think he’d mind my calling him a friend, despite the fact that he’s a fan of one of the worst teams in professional hockey (the St. Louis Blues). Ok, so maybe now he’ll mind. But even though he hates my Detroit Red Wings, I still think he’s a truly gifted writer, and a very good historian that does some great research and shares a tremendous fascination in the American history of the Second World War with his readers.
Since leaving my job with the US Army a few years ago, I’m a bit out of the loop concerning what he’s been working on, but I’m always excited when I see that he has a new book out because I know he’ll always include great firsthand accounts from the men that were there doing the fighting.
I just started reading the book this weekend but hope to have a review done sometime soon.
