A few days later heavy artillery shells are being shot at them by the enemy. One of the bunkers collapses. When they first engage in combat ?Fox,? his good friend, gets hit in the stomach. Later in the book ?Hollywood,? another good friend, is digging trenches and digs up an artillery bomb. It blows him up and he sees he has gotten his legs blown off and then he dies. When that bomb was dug up Patrick and another recruit were stringing razor wire around hill 188S, their base. They get knocked into the wire by the explosion, and are medevaced back to Alpha Base. You?ll have to read the book to find out more.
This book is really thrilling at times. You will want to read it all in one day. This is quite good reading. There are also other books in the My Name is America Series. They are all good.
I recommend this book if you enjoy war books.
