Invaluable for its details about life among American soldiers abroad and not directly involved in battle during WWII. Also for its picture of life in Naples toward the end of the war. Marred by the author's sophomoric philosophizing, purple prose, and condescending attempts to record uneducated GIs' speech patterns.
I read this for a book club discussion group. I liked the interspersed promenades between chapters about various characters. It led me to believe that the horrors of war did not discriminate -- a lot of people were hurt by the war.
Would love to hear comments from soldiers of WW II who have read this book.
