About this title
At the JRTC, soldiers are trained for war in a setting so real you can almost smell the smoke.From Booklist:
Bolger recounts his two experiences commanding the 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment (part of the 101st Airborne) at the Joint Readiness Training Center, Fort Polk, Louisiana. There, the army's light-infantry units train against simulated guerrillas and other Third World types of opposition felt to be the most likely post^-cold war opponents. As his comprehensive and enthralling narrative admits, he and his battalion were often embarrassed during their first session together but made improvements and returned for a second, more successful visit to the center. Describing that process, Bolger paints a warts-and-all picture of today's army, its strengths (the people in it) and its weaknesses (command staff and systems) as well as a detailed portrait, worthy of Tom Clancy in his nonfiction mode, of an airborne rifle battalion. If Bolger is as good a soldier as he is a writer, he may become the first four-star general to also win a Pulitzer Prize. Roland Green
