This isn’t my normal type of book but a friend said I needed to read it. Normally I’m not into war stories and violence but this book had a raw feeling to it that drug me in. It starts out introducing you to the main character John Drake, he was a young man struggling to figure out who he should be. He ends up following his fathers footsteps and joining the military. The book follows him as he goes from wayward young man to harden soldier. I was drawn to John as a character, Patrick Dent did an amazing job of creating all the characters but John had so much depth and was so personable that I found myself crying and cheering for him through the book. I definitely recommend this book to pretty much anyone looking for a great read that will keep you hooked from the first page!
