    Excellent detailed report with facts gleaned from actual letters, reports, and stories by the participants on both sides.Maybe you enjoyed the 1964 movie It was impressive but the screen did not hold true to the facts which are always in line with our perception of reality Short book worth reading for the truth Eleven Victoria Crosses awarded for a battle that did not last than 12 hours.
