RE:  Staff Sergeant David Bellavia's "House to House"

I am now reading "House to House" and I can't put it down.  Seriously, folks, this is one of the best books I've ever read about the combat experience.  I read about 120 pages tonight instead of doing homework.

The way David Bellavia captures the soldiers hearts and their individual characteristics is amazing, the descriptions of combat action are pure adrenalin, putting a lump in your throat and a hit to your gut.

Anyway, if you've wondered why I've been somewhat absent around here, blame Staff Sergeant Bellavia...order it now.
