KIRKUS REVIEW

Narrative poem dealing with 60 minutes in the life-and death- of a young soldier, from the moment of disembarking on a South Pacific island, through his assignment with three others to a reconntering job in the jungle, and his death in an hour of tense service. Intrically good as verse- moving, hard, brilliant- and at the same time an expression of courageous men during terrible stress and tension.
