Tom Infield [gives us] the human side of the war, and historical accuracy and insight in an admirable combination.
Russell F. Weigley, author of Eisenhowers Lieutenants

Intelligent, truthful, sympathetic but unsentimental, this [is] a wonderfully satisfying portrait of people just like us who worked at winning the war at home and on the line.
Paul Fussell, author of Wartime
