Critique and Recommendation
• I think this book is sympathetic to O'HARA and gives a closer match with his character, and his times.
• O'HARA book is very adept at keeping you wanting to read more and more through the writing style that provided through the letters included and this is no exception. It is beautifully written; the detail of characters, the 17th. Century and place is excellent. This is a big book. Really it's well worth the read.
• I, as the editor, of these memoirs thinks that names of persons still alive occur, and events are alluded to which might even yet be disagreeable to individual feelings. We have to take this in our consideration.
• The narration style was remarkable cause that confusion was not noticeable in telling the events, even though the writer used more than once to go back explaining some events relating specific area.
• I think it was incredible the way that the writer described the death of Major O'Hara, in exist of the popularity of the Major ,going through tenor of his private life, obtaining the sympathy of those since they condemned the party, but admired the man.
• I have to confess that Major O'Hara had been in the same level of " Popular Idol ".
• In the end, I would recommend this book to anybody likes the history books or who wan to learn more about operational leadership or how to be a better leader.
