Wow, this was a very troubling book. The stories of solders stealing wedding bands and gold teeth fillings are very painful. I thought we were the good guys. I was always taught the stealing was the work of the Nazis and Russians. I found the book well researched and documented. The book is put together in a good order and is easy to follow. If you are interested in World War Two then this is an interesting and very disappointing view of the American solder.
