KIRKUS REVIEW

Chance for a good popular market for this outsize anthology of our fighting men: -- equipment, training, morale, administration, shipping, leaders and men in the ranks, who they are and why they are fighting, various branches of service, combat zones. Gathered from magazines, newspapers, radio, from the War Department and service, Journals these are pertinent, factual articles by special reporters, officers, servicemen. They write of religion, food, medicine, radio, gas, of Negro and Filipino troops; of placement, Intelligence, Military Government; of coastal mining, the bombsight, grease monkeys. There are profiles of the ""bosses"", including Cabinet members. Palatable coverage on the Army today, for the layman.
