The disclaimer should read sucker for historical fiction I found this book to be packed with historical detail but not historically overwhelming This is a book about the men who fought the war to end all wars from both sides of the trenches Have you always wanted to know about the Red Baron and wonder why Snoopy has a fixation Have you wondered about Pershing probably not who remembers these days The Sopwith Camel the fly boys of the Lafayette Escadrille Here are riveting answers laced with emotion and the reality of what I ve always considered the most stupid of stupid warsHowever that said the stupid part I learned uite a lot about how PR began to frame the public view of war how early fighter pilots thought about engaging the enemy how the US was ill prepared for entrance and fought a battle of national identity against the Brits and French who wanted to merely add the American soldiers to men already mired in muddy trenches My grandfather fought in tanks in France and returned from WWI I have his helmet many pictures and his diary which is in code and I can t read it drat I ve always been attracted to this war uestioning and wondering about events and men death and survival nations and generations lostJeff Shaara creates a world of personal interaction getting into the heads of the real characters Red Baron and Pershing and several amazing fictitious characters who seem so real we should be able to find their names in the history books I switched back and froth from listening to an excellent narrated version to reading the big book doing time on the treadmill hey we re just finishing a harsh winter in Vermont one day and sitting with a cozy dish of popcorn and a warm blanket the next I read myself to sleep each night and couldn t put the book down for long without wanting to pick it up again to discover what happened next even though I knew the ending before I started

Only Jeff Shaara can take a possible info dump and mold it into a gripping and captivating novel To the Last Man recounts the experiences of American and German troops in the air the trenches and command during The Great War We intimately follow Black Jack Pershing an American Marine in the trenches the Red Baron and American pilot Lufbery to develop a better understanding of the real plights and thoughts of those involved in the War to End All Wars I cannot express this enough I respect this work with every fiber of my being Shaara researched each of the men this novel follows extensively It shows The images created are so vivid I ve yet to read a historical book that has put me into the the shoes of the men who have experienced the event discussed like this Shaara uses just enough creative liberties to make this novel read just so but does not sacrifice historical accuracy in the slightest It is absolutely wonderfully written That being said one star is missing from this rating This star was taken away because a book this stupendous can afford to be rated critically The missing star is due to a craving left unsatisfied within this novel I understand that Shaara writes his novels to put American history in the limelight but I so wish that some of this novel followed a German foot soldier The chapters dedicated to The Red Baron where phenomenal but they did not shed very much light to what the life of the common soldier would have been like There is a lot of war for Shaara to have packed into one book but I wish it would have been slightly longer in order to expand the experiences the reader walks through I never thought I d say that a 600 page book wasn t long enough If that isn t testament to how beautifully this novel was done I don t know what is I can t recommend this novel enough I enjoyed every moment of this read and if you are also a history buff I know you will too
