    A collection of columns Steinbeck wrote from various places where he was embedded as we call it now with the troops during World War II Written on apersonal level and with a different style than many columnists of the day who focused on individuals, Steinbeck s book describes settings to make the reader feel like they are there This makes the book unique, because there aren t many dramatic stories, and it sabout the day to day existence where sudden death can come at a moment s A collection of columns Steinbeck wrote from various places where he was embedded as ...
