Disclosure; I received a copy of this book from BookPlex in exchange for an honest review. I have received monetary compensation. However, my opinions are 100% my own!
Wow!! This book is amazing!! I am a huge history lover! I love all things learning about the Wars & different things like that! This book was right up my alley! I typically don’t read books like this, as I tend to be drawn more to Romance Novels, but when I read the synopsis of this book, I couldn’t pass it up! This book is set in the 60’s. Vietnam hadn’t gotten really serious yet & the Korean war was over. The men in this book were stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
With this book, you will learn how the Army of this era trained men when there was no war to fight & how to jump out of airplanes (which is something I REALLY want to do!!!!!) Lieutenant Sy Margolin, became the leader of enlisted soldiers, such as Private Will Patterson & Private Scott Breslin, who were known for challenging military authority the whole way to becoming paratroopers.
I would very highly recommend this book! I was completely immersed!
