on March 23, 2013 :
A harsh, sobering, and completely accurate description of combat that is reminiscent of "All's Quiet on the Western Front." Although set in 1916 France, it could very well have been anywhere from Stalingrad to Inchon, Ia Drang Valley, Baghdad, or anywhere in Afghanistan.
Fripp pulls no punches in naming those responsible for the slaughter of a generation of young men: the blood-thirsty generals and craven politicians who, like the ghouls they are, thrive off the bodies of the young.
This book is so very timely in these hate-filled days of continual war. I wish I could say it would help end the slaughter, but it won't. Politicians and generals and big business will continue to manufacture excuses to murder the young - and the young, sadly, will allow themselves to be murdered. As the folk song says, "when will they ever learn?"
Five stars without hesitation and highly recommended reading for everyone.
