It is my intention to bring to the readers the memory of these gallant men. For me, to read the long list of names on the monuments seems so cold and impersonal. I like to be able to put faces to those names, to know something about them, and to visualize the way they looked and how they felt.” - from the Preface. Gift inscription, else very good.
