This account should be a classic, illuminating not only his experience, or even that of his war, but of soldiers in all modern wars. He covers literally every moment and thought through a graceful read. And although Bellavia had some help with a veteran writer, Bruning, I can hear Bellavia in every sentence.
That said, this has the same theme as most of these books, every officer is an idiot, all support staff are garbage, the ROE is a joke, ya-da, ya-da... It is tiring. I was an officer, some of closest friends got blown up too, grunts were not the only ones in the suck. Also, some of the first person narrative about feelings was maybe a bit too drawn out. Overall, good historical record, okay book.
Last Saturday (10/12/19) My wife and I were privileged to attend the ceremony in which author, and now Medal of Honor recipient, David Bellavia received the keys to th the city of Niagara Falls NY. His speech was stirring, intelligent and sometimes even humorous.
I bought another copy which he graciously autographed an stood for a picture. Do not miss David if you have a chance to meet this remarkable man

This is the best firsthand account of the war by a combat participant I've read. Bellavia pulls no punches - not for the squeamish.
