As Bradley says in the beginning of the book, he felt compelled to "set the record straight" and provide reasoning for his decisions that may not have been clear to either the war correspondents or the foot soldier under his command. Although some similar descriptions can come off dry, the author injects enough anecdotal humor that I found myself smiling or quietly chuckling several times.

Bradley a Soldiers Story book. One of the two books on which the movie Patton was based, A Soldier's Story is a compelling and vivid memoir from the greatest military tactician of our time.

Omar Bradley was a true hero of WWII. This is a book by him about his role in the war. He was not a "Flashy" General, he was one of the guys who got things done. A lot has been written about Patton and Montgomery, but without people like Bradley, they would have not been effective. Bradley spent a lot of time at the front, often in dangerous situations, but that is how he felt he needed to support the troops.

Ernie Pyle was a war correspondent that didn't write about generals, but rather wrote about the soldiers in the field and how they went through hell. These were not career military people, but former bartenders, teachers, librarians, etc. who stepped up and did their duty. The only general that Ernie wrote about was Bradley, which was high acclaim indeed.

I had already read this book, and bought it for my father who is a WWII vet. He enjoyed it as much as I did.

If you like real history, you have to read this book. A good companion to this is Eisenhower's "Crusade in Europe".

I don't normally like the movie, rather than the book, but in this case, I have to go with the movie, "Patton", which was loosely based on this book. I still feel Omar N. Bradly was one of the most underrated commanding officer during WWII. there are chapters than when reading them, you can't put the book down; but then there are selections that just come across as filler, making you wonder just how much he actually wrote. the saving grace is knowing the fact that great minds don't always translate well to the average layman, nor when presented, come across as the writer intended. if you love military reading , and don't wish to be bogged down by boring tactics, this is a book for you.

For World War II buffs only. An excellent and very readable 500 page history of the war in Europe. Up there with Churchill's World War II Memoirs, and with more focus on the American generals. This was the source of much of the movie Patton, but you can see that the movie took some liberties with the facts, especially moving some of the notable incidents around; the book tells you where and when some of those events actually occurred. WW II, along with the US Civil War, retains interest because it was well documented, so that its story can be told, and it took place along such broad fronts that the different viewpoints present a rounder picture of the history, including the personalities of the commanders. Bradley's approach is extremely balanced, and presents the competing interests of Montgomery and the American commanders, including Patton and Bradley himself, in a less biased manner than the Patton movie, which while excellent for a war movie, made Montgomery look like an opportunist without relating either Monty's good points or truly relating his bad points, which included misrepresenting the respective roles of the British and American armies in the Battle of the Bulge. Monty actually took credit for saving the Americans in that historic battle, and then Churchill corrected him very publicly. All in all, a surprisingly fast read for a book loaded with military strategy.

This is must for WWII enthusiasts, and very important for getting the straight scoop on a lot of things that have been mis-interpreted or mis-understood. A lot of things are said about Bradley by other people, but when you read his own words about what did or did not happen, you can see quite clearly what really went on, and why Ike liked him so much and put him in the position of power and importance he had.

It's a very clear, direct and simple book by a straight shooting, honest man who didn't seem to philosophize much, and just got the job done with honor and integrity. I liked it so much I tracked down an original hardcover.

Omar Bradley is one of the few heroes to come out of Moberly, MO so I had to read this book.
This is a fantastic book. It provides a unique perspective on WWII. It is a general's perspective so it isn't an account of dodging bullets in a foxhole.
The beginning of the book does trace Omar Bradley's path from rural Missouri to West Point and his rise through the military ranks. However, this is not an autobiography. It is a great account of the ETO in WWII through Omar Bradley's eyes and describes some of the strategy and planning behind the battles. It also exposes some of the disagreements and struggles between the senior leadership of Britain and the United States.

Ever since the Patton movie in 1970, I have been interested in GSP. A lot of people think Brad had it in for George, but this book is very even-handed. It's a day-by-day chronicle of Bradley's view of WWII. I have not finished it yet but I definitely will because it is a good book. My only problem is trying to keep up with the geography and the huge cast of characters. It's a good read though if you are interested in the topic.

Anyone who is a fan of military history will thoroughly enjoy this book. General Bradley has an easy style of writing. He's objective, yet unabashedly loyal to his own forces. He does not hide his occasional criticism of Montgomery, yet quickly gives praise in the same breath. As Bradley says in the beginning of the book, he felt compelled to "set the record straight" and provide reasoning for his decisions that may not have been clear to either the war correspondents or the foot soldier under his command. Although some similar descriptions can come off dry, the author injects enough anecdotal humor that I found myself smiling or quietly chuckling several times. I also recommend "An Army At Dawn".
What a wonderful WWII historical and view of the American soldiers experience..
