Just finished reading it for the first time. I am 47.<br>Absolutely the best book ever. Hard to pick up another book of fiction once you have finished this - the characters stay with you for a long time.<br><br>To read this as a background while an actual war was going on (Iraq) - gave great insight into the way decisions are made in war, what motivates people, what is the nature of war, battles, soldiers, the long waiting times and anticipation, even the food ... This work of fiction can gve us more insight into actual war than any amount of coverage on CNN.
