The expression "There are no atheists in foxholes" appears to be true, according to military historians. Nonetheless, the warriors in the latest conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan appear to be among the most religious in any American war since the Civil War. Stephen Mansfield portrays this latest generation in battle, using specific people to demonstrate his concepts. Phil Gigante is solid as the narrator, offering an appropriate military crispness to his reading without sounding affected. However, the decision to include complete footnotes after each quotation seriously detracts from the flow of the narrative. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
