I am a Wolrd War II and Vietnam fanatic (not that it's a good thing, liking war) but I've read my share of war books. Even if you're not like me, you'll love this book. There's never a dull moment!

If you are a history buff and enjoy a well told war story this book is for you!

School Project
I had to read Ghost Soldiers for a summer project for my ninth grade history class. I rated it a four because I enjoyed the book, but at times I thought that insted of just saying "it was a long ways" the author wrote about two paragraphs just talking about how far the march was. Besides that, I enjoyed the book and would recomend it to people who enjoy learning about the history of the United States.

The book seemed like it's good but I like to see and feel what I'm reading
thats why I give you a four!!

I didnt like this book because personally i thought it was borning and it felt like i was reading my American History book instead of a novel. I felt bad for all of the soldiers and everything, I just think that the author could have made it more interesting . I kept losing focus and I would start daydreaming whenever I read this book.

My husband served aboard the General A. E. Anderson during WWII and we just returned from the annual reunion of the men who served on this troop transport. To these men this FICTION book is just that, pure fiction, when it comes to anything he says about the Anderson. It is quite evident to these brave men that Mr. Sides did not bother to check his sorces or do any research when it comes to his description of the Anderson. Nothing he says about this wonderful ship is accurate and I wish there was some way he could correct this part of his book. If this section of the book is so incorrect, makes us wonder about the rest of the story.me

I like the book The Ghost Soldier. The only thing,I feel sorry for my dad, who was the ist liutenent of
the group called Bazooka, because his name was not mentioned at all in any of these stories. He has been looking for the any of the 6th army ranger taht is living to have a reunion with them. My dad headed the filipino group that worked with the 6th army rangers. Please, help my dad to make his dream come true of meeting them again if any is still alive. My dad is here now in US and has been looking for them since 1991.I will greatly appreciate if you could help. He is 87 years old now.
Thanks
