From Library Journal:

The author, a military writer with the Washington Post , followed a company of 200 men through Army basic training. Since the company was kept together, he visited the same men a year later to assess what had happened to them. Wilson records a great deal about the men as individuals, their training, and their handling by the officers and NCOs. The story resulting from these two visits is not flattering to the Army. While some of the criticisms are valid and well made, the base for the general conclusions is far too narrow. The same study of a different company might have resulted in a different book. A better book on the modern Army is William Bowman's The All-Volunteer Force After a Decade ( Pergamon, 1986).

From Publishers Weekly:

Wilson became increasingly critical of the Army as he accompanied a group of volunteers through basic and advanced infantry training and their first field maneuver; mishandled trainees, improper protection during exercises and four suicide attempts led him to recommend program changes. PW called this a "judicious yet outspoken evaluation of the All-Volunteer Army." Photos.
