This book is about the life of General Walter Bedell Smith and his military history. If you are really into American history and certain information about the American wars this is the book for you. A first rate biography of the man and the mission. The major battle stories have all been told before but how little a civilian understands the logistics and dynamics of the crucial decision points and the men who produce the victories without firing a shot. This book is a great work of history. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
