I read Ryan s book many years before becoming involved in any wartime experience and I was stunned to observe how accurately his vision portrayed combat I had always heard about how our airborne units were deployed along a highway in Holland but the true scope of the venture wasn t understood by me until I read this book It s a true manual in large troop deployment and how things can go so terribly wrong
