  • The Man from Shenandoah on Jan. 13, 2011

    This book was a very enjoyable read, and felt quite authentic to the time period. The characters were well done with both vulnerable men and strong women, both of whom grow throughout the story. I don't normally read western novels, but I would recommend this book for all readers. I look forward to reading the sequel!
  • Ride to Raton on Jan. 20, 2011

    Heart wrenching story, but great read. I look forward to the next one!
  • That's War on March 11, 2013

    A very insightful book... or rather a journal, written by an American officer who served in World War One. The author of the journal is a talented writer, and quite adept at describing his experiences. He does so in such a way that you can almost picture the hilly countryside and the little towns and even the cobbled streets between old castles and farmland. Surprisingly, the tone of the related events is upbeat and positive, even as the author describes in heart-wrenching detail the life-and-death struggles of the Doughboys along the trenches of the Western Front. You will cheer for them as they fight to restore freedom to the French, and successfully prevent the Germans from advancing any farther. I would recommend this story to anyone looking for an honest, detailed peek into the Great War.

    Enjoyable, quick read. Could easily be expanded as a novel. I loved the reference to November 2008 and the aftermath that followed... We're living it, without a doubt.
