This is a pretty good book but not what i expected. In keeping with the author’s wartime role, and t can best be described as a crisp and orderly processions of names, dates, and facts which comprehensively walks the reader through Jimmy Stewart’s remarkable wartime service.
I was expecting a lot more in the nature of personal recollections, yet most were collected from other parties who served directly with Stewart. Nevertheless I left with a profound appreciation for Stewart’s wartime efforts, not least his desire to fight rather than be relegated to a desk (for safety) or morale-building films on the homefront.
Jimmy Stewart achieved his high rank and commendations not through his celebrity, but in spite of it. His humility and fighting soirit embody the best qualities of our “Greatest Generation”.
