Críticas:

"Gripping . . . These men were common warriors who fought with uncommon courage and thus shaped the destiny of our great nation."
--FORMER SENATOR BOB DOLE


"A RIVETING AND EXTREMELY WELL-RESEARCHED ANALYSIS OF THE VIOLENT WORLD FACED BY THE AMERICAN GI DURING WORLD WAR II . . . Anyone who wishes to understand the experience of our citizen army of fifty years ago should read this book. Highest recommendation."
--ERIC BERGERUD
Author of "Fire in the Sky: The Air War in the South Pacific

""Do you want to know what the World War II foot soldier felt and how he fought? What he ate and how he liked it? What his life was like during periods he was not in combat? "The Deadly Brotherhood" goes a long way towards answering such questions. . . . Each chapter contains a wealth of supporting comments. This approach produces an extreme degree of authenticity. . . . This fine book provides a comprehensive understanding of a World War II infantryman's troubles and travails."
"--Military Review

""An exciting, moving book told in the words of those men who actually fought the enemy face-to-face on the front lines--the infantry, combat engineers, armor, and Marines; those unfortunate souls for whom war was a minute-by-minute struggle against terrifying odds."
--E. B. SLEDGE
Author of "With the Old Breed
