"This is not a series of paintings of battle scenes. Rather it is a portrait of the soldier, in whose face the struggle of combat is reflected. No embellished picture of war can truly portray the intense feelings of the trooper as he or she goes into combat, especially for the first time. That flight into the night, that leap into darkness, the world of the unknown can only be felt by each individual in his or her own personal way. It is the facing of that danger, no matter what the consequences, that is the truly heroic thing, where terror does not blind, nor fear incapacitate."
Al Sprague
