1) That was a great joke. I loved the ending.

2) You know better than to ask that question. Of Course I have read it, I have an extensive library. GREAT READ!! Harrowing. Gritty. Highly Recommended.

The best damned book I read in 2008. The gallantry, drive and commitment of those warriors was beyond the comprehension of mortal men. The above joke made me think of it.
