Narrator literally worst I’ve ever heard cannot pronounce OFF I CER keeps saying OFFSERS. Annoying. Also a lot of soldiers claiming they won awards but the officer forgot, got shot, political snub yada yada rubbed me the wrong way. Still I’m a sucker for a war memoir so not all bad decent amount of battles recounted but a lot of just summarizing.
