    "Ashley's War is an exceptionally well-written book that has captured the essence of extraordinary women in the military. Ashley, being one of the special women who led the charge onto the battlefield, clearly highlights a woman's sense of duty, drive, motivations, fears, doubts, desires, loyalty, honor, commitment and resolve. It is an easy read and gave me a new understanding about the US army and their and commitment to serve. "
