I received a review copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.


This book will take you on a romp through a terrible part of history, bringing you the delicate balance of humor within the framework of the horror of war.


I was enchanted by the third page. The writing is clear, crisp, and concise.


One particular note I made is that the characterizations are fabulously well developed. I really felt like I got to know them and that they were real people.
