This is a story I was not aware of, having not read anything about until now. I have read over 300 books about WWII, but nothing about this before, how the war could have possibly been shortened.

This book opened my eyes to the decisions made by US military leaders that unnecessarily cost too many American and Allied lives in WW2.I found myself putting the book down and taking a deep breath and trying to process the terrible costs resulting from inflated egos and peer competition in the US military leadership. Whiting opened my awareness of the insane consequences of arbitrary decisions and the lasting impact on American families. The French conduct in the war just further incensed me as well. I loved the book even if it made me mad over and over.
