|Review of That’s War by Judge Patti Smith|
Sirmon’s diary offers a glimpse into the daily routine of an army soldier preparing himself and his men for “the Great Adventure”—the battle fields of WWI. Sirmon’s fastidious and often humorous recordation of the daily routines of life as a soldier includes more than the mundane. His insightful observations of the men he led and encountered is no less than intriguing.
The reader will be inspired by the bravery, heroism and heartfelt patriotism of this American soldier, willing to sacrifice all.
