Summary
"Henry G. Gole was a BAR man in a rifle squad in the Korean War and a Special Forces officer during two tours in Vietnam. A career soldier with strong academic credential and honed writing skills, Gole's tales personalize the ugly process that was modern industrial and technical war in the second half of the twentieth century. The reader never forgets that human begins are at the center of combat, which has become too often a video game for too many citizens. The result is an honest look at the professional military at war."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
