About this title

Synopsis:

Based on interviews with twelve West Point graduates, the author explores the diverse responses and experiences of men trained as officers who fought in Vietnam and charts the impact of that experience in all facets of their lives

From Library Journal:

Prashker presents the development of the U.S. Army in the Vietnam and post-Vietnam eras by concentrating on its spiritual centerWest Pointand 12 officers whose lives and careers have been shaped by the institution. Most of these men, junior officers during the Vietnam War, are now part of the pool providing future chiefs of staff. The book has some technical shortcomings but in spite of those, the interviews convey vivid pictures of command in war and peace, of how the Army has changed and not changed in recent years, and of the personal and professional qualities needed for success in the U.S. military system.
