One of the best books ever written help convey the tragedy of war, and the loss of youth.
This should be studied in high school literature.
It is as important as Anne Frank's diary and Nadeem Aslam's 'The Blind Man's Garden' to help us learn from the horrors of the past and how e as people are affected on the individual level by events that often surpass the minute scope due to their scale.
The performance is nice and clear.

Excellent performance

An excellent reading of this important work. Jeremy Northam's voice projects as though the thoughts are his own. Eric Arthur Blair's (Orwell) non-fiction piece on his observations of the working class, thoughts on socialism, and the creeping dangers of fascism remains significant in this century.

Beautifully written classic

This highly descriptive book is an important study of man’s spirit, censorship, and the costs of a society’s unthinking pursuit of happiness in a dystopian future. It has proved to be a timeless piece and is well performed here.

Fantastic insight

A great read from a leader frequently at the point of impact in world events over the past four decades.

The General's approach and warrior spirit is impressive and the book effectively portrays a full life of service. His hold no punches style is refreshing in an age where speech is often stifled.

Some true gems of leadership can be found in this book.

In addition the material in Appendix greatly adds value.

Danny Campbell does the General justice in his performance of the work.

Get this book you won't be disappointed.

This book is a great read, taking place in the European theatre in a possible cold war turned hot scenario of the 1980s. Clearly written with accurate detail to tactics and the operation of armoured vehicles. It can be seen to be a motivator for US/NATO armoured crewman to maintain standards and to increase their confidence in their equipment in a possible scenario. Though it is starting to show its age now, it remains a great motivator focused at a combined arms at combat team level. The equipment of the friendly combat team in use is era relevant and includes the M3 Bradley for Cavalry Troops, M1A1 for Tank Troops, M113 for Mech Infantry Platoons, M47 Dragon Anti-tank wpn and associated small arms.

A must read

This book is one of the most important out there to help create an understanding of mindset and actions both in and out of combat. Recommended reading for all in this often turbulent world. Topics range from warrior mindset, physiological responses to combat and stress, cultural influences, methods to deal with combat stress, PTSD causes and techniques to reduce its occurrence and ways to move forward with it. All given with extensive broad experience examples from across society. I recommend this book to all, but find it absolutely essential to all in the profession of arms or law enforcement and their families as a minimum.
