Editorial Reviews

R. Z. Sheppard Time Citizen Soldiers [is] a high point in Ambrose's long fascination with the nature of leaders and followers.
John Lehman The Wall Street Journal History boldly told and elegantly written....Gripping.
Kyle Smith People Ambrose proves once again he is a masterful historian....Spellbinding....The book captures the bizarre contradictions, random kindness and unexpectedly comic moments of the push to Berlin as memorably as a great war novel.
John Omicinski Detroit Free Press Ambrose's Citizen Soldiers is his best book ever, the culmination of a career largely spent immersed in the details of Ike's war.
