This book is the only non-fiction book that I have read that was impossible to put down. The lives of Dan Hill and Rick Rescorla are chronicled by Mr. Stewart in a manner that makes the reader feel like these two men are personal friends. The action, the drama, the blood and guts of war, the tenderness and the heartbreak are put right out there in a way that made me feel like I was living it with them. An absolutely magnificent piece of work! Read More
