Losing the Reader

is something that doesn't happen in this story.

I was intrigued by the self-analysis or journal type of feel to this story. It was largely a story about his own experiences and thoughts on the Loss of the true essence of War. That gives me some consolation regarding my own story. Writing about my own experiences is always something that makes my journalism instincts feel a bit squeemish. But maybe that can work.

I liked the balance of entertainment and education. There was some doses of humor, but I learned a lot about WWII in the meantime. This all goes back to structure. This story had all the content of a history textbook. But it was a much better read. Strategic structure.
